Denver Family Lawyer

Denver Grandparents Rights Lawyer

The state of Colorado recognizes the rights of grandparents to have a relationship with their grandchildren.

If you are a grandparent with questions about possibly establishing your legal rights to visit your grandchildren or even possibly becoming the legal guardian of your grandchildren, contact us here at the law office of the Denver Family Lawyer to discuss your case. 

When someone with children gets divorced, the child’s grandparents have the right to go to court and request visitation rights.  Even when a parent of a child is not granted any form of custody, the child’s grandparents may still petition the court for visitation rights.

In order to make a decision on grandparenting time, the judge will consider the nature of the relationship the grandparent had with the grandchild prior to the petition for visitation being filed.

It is also possible in some cases for a grandparent to be awarded custody of a grandchild; especially in instances where the grandparent has been providing the majority of the custodial care.  These types of legal battles can be quite complicated, and it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney about your case as soon as possible.

The Denver Family Lawyer has many years of experience working with all types of custody and visitation arrangements.  Contact us today to discuss your grandparents’ rights case.
