Scott C. Robertson Law Office, P.C. has represented numerous grandparents in child custody and visitation cases. The chances of any particular grandparent getting custody of their grandchild, or visits with their grandchild, will depend upon several factors which vary from case to case.
The legal requirements for obtaining a court order that places custody of a child with the child’s grandparent differ from the requirements for obtaining custody for a parent. It is smart for a grandparent who wants custody of their grandchild, or who wants court-ordered grandparent visitation, to get advice from a lawyer who has experience obtaining court orders for grandparents.
