Denver Grandparents' Rights Attorney

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

Grandparents with grandchildThere 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.

The team at Jones Law Firm, PC can walk you through the process of fighting for visitation or custody rights as a grandparent.

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
