Murrieta Family Law Attorney
Defending the Rights of Grandparents Across California
Divorce impacts all members of a family, including grandparents. A broken family can be extremely difficult for a child to comprehend. This makes extended family members all the more important for the well-being and emotional growth of a child. For some grandparents, a divorce means increased difficulties when it comes to visiting their grandchildren.
Because of this, a grandparent’s right to visit their grandchildren is given consideration under California law. Grandparents can formally request reasonable visitation rights with their grandchildren.
For cases where a parent refuses visitation rights, the grandparent will need to consult professional assistance to maintain a relationship with the grandchild. Our experienced attorneys can help with this if need be. At, Singleton Smith Law Offices, Inc., we can help you establish a pre-existing relationship and familial bond between you and your grandchild.
Courts will consider the following factors in these types of cases to determine the best interest of the child:
- The child’s age
- Special needs of the child
- The placement of siblings
- Relationship with grandparents or others who dwell in the home
- Grandparent’s use of drugs or alcohol
- Grandparent’s mental and physical health
- The stability of the home’s environment
- Death or incarceration of one of the parents
Our legal team takes on grandparent rights cases involving:
- Parents Refusing Visitation Rights
- Overseas & Military Separations
- Temporary or Long-Term Guardianship
