Grandparent Visitation Rights Under the Law

Though legal circumstances vary by state, in general grandparents face a difficult battle to obtain visitation with their grandchildren when the parents object to the visits. The burden is on grandparents to prove their relationship with the children is established and beneficial, and that the grandparents won’t harm the children while they are in their care. However, the law is changing every day and increasingly recognizing the importance, tradition, and value of having grandparents in children’s lives.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents.

Common legal terms explained

Pro se – This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
