Protecting Your Rights Now & For The Future

Denver Grandparents' Rights Attorney

Should I seek court-ordered visitation or custody of my grandchildren?

There are several situations where child custody or visitation may be awarded to the grandparents of a child. Any person who is not the child's natural parent may petition for custody if that person has had physical care of the child (under 18 years of age) for at least 6 months or more. The petition must be filed within six months after physical care has ceased.

Visitation Rights for Grandparents

In specific regard to grandparents' rights, visitation may be awarded to the grandparents of a child (or children) if:

  • The parents have divorced
  • The grandparents are the parents of the child's deceased mother or father
  • Legal custody has been granted to a third party
