Grandparents are often an important part of children’s lives. Your adult child’s divorce doesn’t have to mean that you lose the connection you have with your grandchild.
I am Plano grandparents’ rights attorney Rachel Li. I will aggressively work with the courts to help you secure your right to maintain a meaningful relationship with your grandchild, no matter which parent was awarded possession (custody) rights.
From offices in Plano, we represent clients in courts in Collin County, Denton County and Dallas County, Texas. Call (214) 616-3684 to arrange an initial consultation with an experienced Texas divorce and family law services lawyer. You may also use the convenient email contact form to submit a brief description of your legal needs and request an office consultation. Please be advised that we cannot give legal advice over the phone.
Court-Ordered Visitation Rights And Custody
Often, grandparents have the capacity and resources to provide the stable environment that is lacking in the child’s primary home. We can help you obtain court-ordered visitation rights or permanent custody, in the event the child’s parent is unable to provide for the child’s welfare.
A legal guardian is a person who has the legal authority (and duty) to care for the personal and property interests of another person. Courts generally have the power to appoint a guardian for an individual in need of special protection. We have extensive experience with the guardianship requirements and the petition process.
The Adoption Option
Adoption may be the best option for grandparents who know that raising their grandchildren as their own will be in everyone’s best interests. Any adult may adopt a child, whether the adult is single or married, resident or nonresident, so long as the adoption is in the best interest of the child. If the child to be adopted is older than age 12, he or she must consent to the adoption, though the court may waive this requirement.
