Grandparent Visitation Rights

Grandparent Visitation Rights


Grandparents are generally a wonderful memory of childhood.  However, when family discord happens, parents may, unfortunately, attempt to restrict a grandparent’s access to their grandchildren.

New York State recognizes the rights of grandparents to have a relationship with their grandchildren.  This provides grandparents with an avenue for remedy when they find themselves excluded from their grandchildren’s lives.

However, Grandparents should be aware that the law requires certain criteria for a grandparent to claim these rights in court. If you are a grandparent seeking to reestablish access to your grandchildren, you will need an attorney that is skilled in this practice.
