Grandparents Rights To Visitation
Grandparents often play an important role in children’s lives. In some families, they serve as the primary caregivers for the children. Many grandparents strive to maintain a high level of involvement in the children’s upbringing and day-to-day life. When a divorce, separation or child custody matter threatens to destabilize the children’s relationships with their grandparents, legal intervention may be necessary to enforce grandparents’ rights.
Minnesota law grants parents specific parenting time (visitation) rights under certain circumstances. Grandparents may also seek full custody when the biological parents are unfit to care for their children due to issues such as drug or alcohol addiction or neglect.
The Challenges Of Establishing Grandparents’ Rights
Parents have a foundational constitutional right to raise their children as they see fit, within certain boundaries. Because of this right, grandparents often face an uphill battle in seeking custody or parenting time. It is up to them to prove that they are entitled to spend more time with the children or serve as their primary caregivers.
Given the weight and importance of what is at stake — your grandchildren’s well-being and future — it is important to seek help from a family law attorney. With professional legal guidance, you can understand your options and maximize your chances of success.
