What are the factors that affect grandparents' rights?

Grandparents can sometimes be stabilizing influencers in the lives of children who are experiencing the turbulence of a home broken by divorce. Following the proceedings, however, extended family members are not always privy to the same amount of time they once spent with the youngest of the bunch. Ohio grandparents, you may find it helpful to know what factors the courts consider when deciding whether to grant you the right to visit your grandchildren. 

The shaky ground of grandparents' rights

Divorce can be a scary time for everyone involved, but it can be especially troubling for grandparents. Sometimes they feel they have to take a back seat while their kids work things out as adults, but their lives are changing, too. The relationships with their grandchildren may also shift dramatically. Ohio grandparents who are wondering how their son's impending divorce will impact time with his kids should read on.

Understanding grandparent visitation rights following adoption

Like most grandparents in Hamilton, your care and concern for your grandchildren supersedes your own personal desires. Thus, as difficult as it may be, sometimes you may be asked to accept them being adopted by another party. Many have come to us here at The Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC in such situations concerned that their grandchildren's adoptions would signal the end of their associations with them. Such fears are valid. Once your child no longer has parental rights (for whatever reason), where does that leave your relationship with your grandchildren? 

Can grandparents get visitation rights?

If you are a grandparent of a child in Ohio, you may wonder if you have any rights to visitation with that child. While your rights are not automatic like a parent's rights, the court can grant you visitation in some situations. Generally, according to the Ohio Legislative Service, to be awarded grandparents visitation rights, you must show that it is in the best interests of the child.

Grandparents and grandchildren: preserving the relationship

At the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC, in Ohio, we know that as a grandparent, you have very few rights under Ohio law. We also know, however, that this does not mean that it is impossible for you to preserve your grandparent-grandchild relationships or for you to file an action seeking visitation in your grandchild's best interests.
