Can Grandparents Obtain Custody of Grandchildren in a Divorce?

Going through a divorce is never an easy time. This is especially true for parents trying to meet the needs of their children while at the same time reaching a reasonable agreement with their spouse. The divorce process affects many, including extended family members. A post-divorce life might be challenging for children, and in order to meet their best interests, other family members might step up. In some cases grandparents assert the rights afforded to them to meet the needs and interests of his or her grandchildren.

When Ohio Grandparents Must Fight for Visitation Rights

During and after the divorce process, parents in Ohio might notice a lot of changes when they compare their post-divorce life with their married life. In addition to changes occurring in the lives of the parents, children are also adjusting to a new routine. And in some cases, the complexities of the emotional process can impact people other than the spouses and their children. In some situations, grandparents are left out of the loop and may not see their grandchildren often, if at all.

Understanding How and When to Invoke Grandparents' Rights

Divorce not only affects the couple ending their marriage but also impacts other family members, especially when children are involved. In these matters, the parents of the divorcing couple may question how this life-changing event could affect them. Dissolution of a marriage could lead to disputes regarding visitation of grandchildren. Our law firm understands that divorce often includes more than just the splitting couple, and often grandparents seek to invoke their rights. Whether it is seeking visitation rights, custody rights or even filing for adoption, grandparents should understand what options they have and what route they can take.
