Grandparents’ Visitation Rights

Determining child custody and visitation rights is an important aspect of obtaining a divorce decree in Cumming. In addition to parental visitation rights, grandparents may also request child visitation rights following a divorce to maintain their relationship with their grandchildren. The type of visitation rights available and how they are obtained will depend on the state’s existing visitation laws, as well as the specific situation surrounding the marriage annulment. Furthermore, grandparents’ visitation rights often hinge on whether continued visitation is in the best interests of the child. One or more parents can request denial of the grandparents’ visitation rights in family court if they believe continued contact will negatively affect the child in question.

If there is parental resistance regarding the granting of grandparents’ visitation rights, your best choice is to consult an experienced divorce attorney to determine your rights under your current state’s family law. Solutions such as divorce mediation can allow families to reach a mutually beneficial child custody and visitation agreement that maintains the child’s best interests at all times.
