When can grandparents assert their rights?
Typical situations where grandparents’ rights are arguable include:
- When the child’s parent(s) have died
- When the child’s parents(s) have been jailed
- When the child’s parents(s) have been found incompetent
- When the child’s parents have divorced
- When the child has been abused or neglected by their parents
- When a court order has severed the parent/child relationship
- When the child has lived with the grandparents for six months or more
There are exceptions (such as when biological grandparents seek access to a child that has been legally adopted—this is not permitted) and grandparents’ rights are not protected by our constitution. That is why aggressive and compelling representation is needed in these cases: to vividly put forth the circumstances of the child and fully illustrate how you, as grandparents, can meaningfully contribute to the best interests and future of the child.
