Grandparent Custody

Under Pennsylvania law, grandparents have the right to seek legal and physical custody of their grandchildren. However, the statutory scheme is complicated, and the law is still evolving.

Although judges are required to base custody decisions on "the best interests of the children," when the custody contest pits grandparents against parents, the judge must also consider the constitutional rights of parents regarding issues concerning their children.

The family law attorneys at Berman & Asbel, LLP, have significant experience in assisting their clients in navigating the thicket of issues that control the outcome when grandparents seek custody of their grandchildren.
