This is especially true for grandparents who have grandchildren involved in a serious custody battle. Grandparents can endure a uniquely trying time, as their visitation rights with their grandchildren is severely cut down, if not ellimited altogether.

You may even be concerned about the financial support provided to your grandchildren and their current custody situation.
