Grandparents' Rights Lawyer in Greenville, SC
Grandparents' Rights Overview
At Black, Black & Montgomery LLC, our commitment to protecting custody and visitation rights goes beyond representing parents. We also assist grandparents in asserting their rights in family law matters.
The general rule in these cases is that visitation is not granted to grandparents unless there is no longer an intact marriage between the parents. During or after a divorce or separation, grandparents can take legal action to make sure they maintain a relationship with their grandchildren through visitation. The death of a parent and divorce are the two most common situations that lead to grandparents' visitation rights being sought.
Ultimately, the court will judge on these matters based on what is in the best interest of the children. As a result, visitation is more likely to be granted to a grandparent who had regular contact and a well-established relationship with his or her grandchild or grandchildren.
At Black, Black & Montgomery LLC, our lawyers work closely with grandparents, examining their situation and providing them with an honest assessment regarding the likelihood of being granted visitation or even custody rights in these difficult situations.
