grandparent and grandchild in orchardUnder certain circumstances, grandparents have the legally-recognized right to visitation or custody of one or more of their grandchildren. Whether or not your grandchildren currently live with you, or whether they live with one parent or both, you may be able to seek visitation or custody depending on the present conditions. The Law Firm of John F. Zeckel, S.C. can help you assert your rights and make a strong case for court-ordered grandparent/grandchild visitation or custody.

Why Grandparent Rights Need to be Recognized

Many grandparents are raising their grandchildren either temporarily or permanently. Legal custody documents or guardianship are often necessary to provide for the medical and educational needs of the child. Even if their parents consent to their children residing with you, there will be important events that arise requiring you to prove guardianship. For example, if your child suffers an injury at school and is taken to a hospital for surgery, they may need parental or guardian consent. If you do not have the necessary documentation and their parents cannot be reached, healthcare providers may be reluctant to authorize your healthcare directives.
