Grandparents and Child Custody
A child who does not get to spend quality time with his or her grandparents is missing out on one of the true joys in life. The bond between grandparent and grandchild can be one filled with love, learning and fun. At The Mandel Law Firm, we stand up for grandmas and grandpas who want to play an active role in their grandkids' lives. If something or someone is preventing you from doing this, we will help you pursue the best possible solution.
As a grandparent, you may be able to obtain custody of your grandchild under certain circumstances. For example, if a parent passes away, leaving his or her child with a surviving parent, custody can be sought if the surviving parent can be shown to be "unfit" and it would be in the best interest of the child to reside with the grandparents.
Contact us today online or by telephone toll-free at (888) 2 WIN NOW (888-294-6669) or locally at (646) 770-3868 to speak with an experienced New York lawyer about grandparent visitation.
Standing Up for Grandparents' Rights
Are your grandparent rights in jeopardy? At The Mandel Law Firm, we help people who are having trouble maintaining contact with their grandchildren in the wake of the divorce or separation of the grandchild's parents, or the death of one of the parents. It is important to remember that just because there is turmoil between the parents in a relationship, the grandparents still maintain important rights. In the past, courts have only given parents visitation rights with their children. Now however, the courts are starting to recognize the important role grandparents and other non-parents can play in the lives of children of divorced parents.
Our attorneys help grandparents from New York City, Long Island, Westchester County and throughout the New York metropolitan area recognize and assert their rights as they pertain to child custody and visitation issues. If you feel that your rights are being denied, we can help you explore your legal options, and if necessary, petition the state for visitation rights.
