Grandparents’ Rights

The relationship and bond between grandparents and grandchildren is very important to the emotional development and well-being of a child. At times, grandparents may become estranged from their grandchildren. Under certain circumstances, the law in Pennsylvania provides grandparents and great-grandparents with the ability to seek rights of physical custody of their grandchildren.

In situations where grandparents have been placed in the role of a primary caregiver to their grandchildren for a period of time, grandparents have the right to seek primary physical custody of their grandchildren. If the parents are not capable of providing the proper care for the children, then the Court may award custody to the grandparents.

In situations, such as the death of a parent or separation of the parents, where the grandparents find themselves restricted from having a relationship with the grandchildren, the law also provides grandparents with the ability to seek rights of partial custody and visitation of their grandchildren.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling grandparent custody cases. In many situations, amicable resolutions can be reached. In other situations, litigation is necessary to achieve the best outcome for our clients.
