Fight for the Custody or Visitation Rights You Deserve

Bitter divorces can result in an aftermath of hurt feelings and severed relationships. Some former spouses will seek revenge not only on their ex, but also on their ex's parents. Your former son- or daughter-in-law may take advantage of legal circumstances to shut you out of your grandchild's life. For example: if your own child has lost custody and visitation rights, the other parent may use that as an excuse to deny you access to your grandchildren.

When you are being threatened with losing access to your grandchildren, our firm can help build a case to fight this process. In some cases, there may be evidence suggesting that your ex in-law is incapable of adequately providing for your grandchildren. If this happens, we can work to see that the children in question are not placed in the foster system, or that they are not left with step-parents. As a biological grandparent, you have rights to see your relatives, and our firm is dedicated to making sure this happens.

Under Arizona law, there are a number of considerations the court will make when providing you with access to your grandchild, such as:

  • The relationship that you have had with your grandchild(ren) historically
  • Your motivations for seeking access to your grandchild
  • The motivations of the person denying you access to your grandchild
  • The amount of visitation time for which you are asking, and its impact on your grandchild's daily routine
  • The advantages to the child of maintaining relationships with extended family, if one or both parents are deceased
