Custody and Visitation for Grandparents
As the family structure changes, so do the options for child custody and visitation rights. In recent years, the courts have started to recognize the rights of grandparents to visit their grandchildren.
At Berman & Asbel, LLP, we understand Pennsylvania's law and the legal process that can have an impact on you and your family. We have represented grandparents in all types of visitation and custody cases such as when:
- A surviving parent is not allowing the deceased parent's parents to visit the grandchild
- A grandparent has served as the primary caregiver for the child — called in loco parentis — for a length of time
- The child lived with the grandparents for an extended time
- The parents are unable to adequately care for the child
We help grandparents to file petitions for visitation rights or custody, and we protect their rights during all family court proceedings. Our attorneys also represent parents who oppose the grandparents' request for visitation or custody.
Our Media law firm understands that adoptions for remarried and same-sex couples have become more common in recent years. Securing legal rights to care for a child is an important step of making a family whole. We help these families form the legal bonds through a process commonly called second-parent adoption.
