Becoming a grandparent can be one of the biggest joys in a person’s life. However, when your grandchildren’s parents are experiencing marital problems, or they will not let you see your own grandchildren, this great joy can become a tragedy. Not only is this tragic for you, but if you know that your grandchildren are not receiving the care they need, this can be tragic for them, as well.
Asserting your rights to your grandchildren can be emotionally challenging as well as legally complex. It is important to work with a law firm with experienced attorneys who understand what you are going through.

Protecting Your Rights As Grandparents
At Eden Rafferty, we help grandparents assert their rights in a range of areas:
- Visitation rights: In some cases, one of the spouses refuses to allow the children’s grandparents the right to visit them. We can help you establish your right to visit your grandchildren.
- Custody: When the children’s parents are unable to fulfill their duties as parents, grandparents often step in to claim custody over the children and provide them with the provision and care they need. We represent grandparents seeking custody rights over their grandchildren.
- Paternity: For paternal grandparents whose grandchildren were born out of wedlock, it is necessary to establish paternity before asserting visitation rights.
We can work with the family or petition the court if necessary to help you maintain your relationship with your grandchildren and protect their well-being.
