Grandparents’ Rights

Phoenix Grandparents’ Rights Lawyers

Grandparents' RightsA grandparent’s desire to visit with and have a relationship with a grandchild is natural. Time spent with grandparents can greatly enrich a child’s life. Fortunately or unfortunately, a parent’s legal rights will generally override the rights of the grandparents or other extended-family members.

Nonetheless, grandparents can have either visitation or even custody of their grandchildren awarded to them on some occasions. The granting of visitation and custody rights to children’s grandparents is not an isolated event. This is because, in spite of parents’ strong legal rights, courts place the rights and best interests of the child even higher.

If you are a grandparent and are interested in gaining or formalizing your rights as a grandparent or de facto parent, the Phoenix, Arizona, family law firm of Burns, Nickerson & Taylor can help. Lead attorney Neal C. Taylor is a grandparent of five and a one-time single parent. He understands the concerns of grandparents and has successfully resolved hundreds of family law cases.

The pursuit of grandparents’ rights often requires a great deal of strategy.
