CAN I GET CUSTODY OF MY GRANDCHILD? WHAT IS DE FACTO CUSTODY?

A grandparent who has been a primary caretaker of a child for a certain period of time (usually dependent on the age of the child and whether the grandparent or family member has been the primary caregiver and financial supporter) may be able to obtain the same rights as a regular parent. In other child custody and grandparents' rights cases, the court will consider the wishes of parents and children, the relationship between the child and parents, the child's adjustment to their home, school and community and the mental and physical condition of all persons involved. If you are seeking visitation or custody rights or you want to defend against the right of an intervening grandparent, please contact our office for an immediate consultation.
