Attorneys Advocating For The Custody And Visitation Rights Of Devoted Grandparents
Child custody laws in Pennsylvania give grandparents and great-grandparents custody rights over their grandchildren. In certain circumstances, grandparents can ask the court for the right to visit with their grandchildren. In still other circumstances, a grandparent or great-grandparent can seek custody of their grandchildren. Our family law attorneys at Astor Weiss Kaplan & Mandel LLP, understand how this process works and can guide you through it with fair and effective legal representation.
Protecting The Best Interests Of The Child
Courts will look to see if custodial time with the grandparents is in the best interests of the child. When deciding on the best interests of the child, courts will look at various factors, including the emotional ties between the child and the grandparents, the ability of the grandparents to enhance the emotional needs of the child, and the child’s preferences.
