Grandparents Rights in Valparaiso, IN
Family Law in Porter County, IN
Are you afraid of losing contact with your grandchild after the divorce of your child and their spouse? The bad news is that losing contact with them is possible. The good news is that you can fight to keep them in your life.
To increase your chances of keep seeing your grandchildren on a regular basis, it is best to call an experienced Indiana grandparents rights attorney for help. Family court procedures are messy due to the high emotional intensity involved, hence it is crucial to be represented by someone who understands your difficult life situation, yet can act on your behalf rationally.
Grandparents in Indiana may be granted visitation rights if the marriage of the grandchild’s parents has been dissolved in Indiana. You’ll have to file a petition to the court, in which you’ll explain that you have had a meaningful relationship so far and the visitation is in the best interest of the child. The court will examine your relationship and, depending on the findings, will determine whether to grant you such rights.
This is the point where you’ll need lawyer’s help most. An experienced Indiana family law attorney knows which parts of the grandparent-grandchild relationship to emphasize in the court in order to save your relationship with your grandchild.
