Grandparents’ Rights in Alaska
There are many situations in which a grandparent may have to fight for custody or visitation rights. In some cases, one parent will obtain sole custody rights over a child and will not let the grandparents on the other side visit the child. In some cases, grandparents seek custody because they feel the parents are unfit and the child is in danger. Regardless your situation, it is important to remember the Alaska law recognized grandparents’ rights.
Under Alaska law, grandparents have the right to bring a separate claim for visitation rights in a child custody matter. In every child custody case, the court considers what is in the best interests of the child when making decisions.
Therefore, when it can be demonstrated that the child will benefit from continued access to the grandparents, it is possible to overcome the objections of the parents.
