Grandparents Rights

The relationship between a grandchild and a grandparent is an important one. Grandparent rights are not always protected when the child’s parents divorce or separate.

If you are a grandparent who is seeking visitation or child custody rights, please speak to a grandparent rights attorney from our firm to learn about your options. Contact us today or fill out an evaluation online schedule a free consultation.

Grandparent Custody

There are a number of reasons why grandparents may seek child custody rights:

  • If the child’s parents have substance abuse problems
  • If the child’s parents are unable to provide child care
  • If the child lives with the grandparents

If you are a grandparent who believes it is in your grandchild’s best interests to seek child custody rights, we urge you to contact our law office to speak to an attorney. We can help you understand your options to protect your relationship with your grandchildren.

Grandparent Visitation

When parents deny grandparents access to their grandchildren, what options do grandparents have? Grandparents may go to court to seek visitation rights under certain, very limited circumstances. It is advisable to speak to a lawyer about your specific situation if you are seeking time with your grandchild.

  • Great Lawyer in court and out

    Had a tough interstate custody case with my ex. Mike was awesome and made sure my kid end up here with me where he belonged. Highly recommend.

    In the summer of 2013 I found myself visiting multiple legal firms in the FTW area. I was searching for the perfect person and firm to represent me. I was filing for custody of my very young daughter. When I met Melissa Swan, I knew that my search was over. She immediately had a game plan and made me feel very secure. Anytime I had a question, Priscilla and Jason made sure that it was answered in a timely manner. We spent less than a year, and after it was all said and done, I have primary custody of my daughter. I would say hiring Ms. Swan and Schneider Law Firm was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made.

    In 2012 I found myself looking for a lawyer. I found Schneider Law Firm. I went in for my consultation, and then met with Melissa Swan. Melissa is very understanding and handled my case with care.

    Absolutely the best law firm around when it comes to Family Law. I first came into contact with Melissa Swan in 2013 and I only wish our paths would have crossed way before. Melissa is outstanding and has been a total lifesaver for my daughter and myself. She, along with Priscilla and Laurie have gone above and beyond. I would highly recommend Melissa Swan.

    Bria Wallace represented me in a family case. I would and have recommended her to many friends who were or have been in the same situation as I was. She is very professional and honest. She helped me get the most precious thing back to me. Thank you Bria.

    Melissa Swan was absolutely brilliant at handling a family law appeal judgement for me. Appeals in family court are VERY difficult, but she cared enough to really dig deep and make a bullet-proof appeal case and WINNING! Would highly recommend.
