Grandparents Rights

Grandparents Rights in Family Law Matters

The bond between grandparents and their grandchildren is undeniable and one that is very important to a child's development and sense of family history. If the relationship between the parents begins to deteriorate, however, the children's relationship with their grandparents can frequently suffer as a result.

In Pennsylvania, if parents divorce, the grandparents have the right to petition the court for visitation rights with their grandchildren if they have not been included in the divorce agreement. These can sometimes be very complex and contentious matters in the event of a high-conflict divorce. From our offices in Harrisburg, the lawyers at the law firm of Lavery Law, protect the rights of grandparents throughout central Pennsylvania.
