Central Texas Lawyers Experienced with Grandparent Rights
Grandparent Custody and Visitation
Where risk exists for a child, a grandparent must then decide the next steps. A grandparent can file a case in court and request custody. In some limited cases, a grandparent may also ask for visitation rights only. Filing a court case for custody will necessarily involve a grandparent bringing his or her own child to court. This can have a long-term impact on family relationships. Short of filing a court case, an experienced lawyer can also help generate a plan to help with the immediate safety needs of the child. This can include making a report to the appropriate authorities or having a plan to document the risk to the child for a future court case.
