Establishing Grandparents Rights In Ohio

Cincinnati Family Law Attorneys Here to Help You

When a child goes through divorce, a parent can often experience many of the same challenges and complex emotions throughout the process. This is especially true when those parents are grandparents of children involved in a serious custody battle. Grandparents can endure a uniquely trying time, as their time with their grandchildren is severely cut down, if not limited altogether.

As a grandparent, we understand that you may be concerned over how often-if at all-you will be able to see your grandchildren following a divorce or separation. You may even be concerned about the financial support provided to your grandchildren and their current custody situation. If you need to pursue visitation with or custody of grandchildren, King, Koligian & Associates, LLC can guide you through this time.

Explaining Grandparents' Rights

In certain cases, extended family may be granted access to the children of the parents they are related to in the event of divorce. The court will take into consideration many factors when making this determination.

  • Some issues that may lead to grandparents obtaining custody:
  • Substance abuse by parents
  • Domestic violence or abuse in the household
  • Lack of financial means to support children
  • Parent(s) have mental health or medical issues
  • Death of one or both parents

Our team works with grandparents who wish to maintain their bond with grandchildren, as well as those seeking custody in serious circumstances.
