As a grandparent you may love your grandchildren as much as you love your own children - sometimes even more. No matter what happens in your family, or what your children may think, you'd like the opportunity to see your grandchildren grow up, and you'd like to have a chance to influence their development. Under California Family Law, specifically section 3103, you have rights as grandparents - you have Grandparent's Rights. California legal code specifically states you may have the right to reasonable visitation, if it's in the best interest of the child.
At Herreman Law Firm we want to help you make sure you are afforded your legal rights, as well as access to your grandchildren. We've helped many clients like you with Family Law issues, and we feel confident that we can help you as well.
Grandparents' Visitation Rights in California
In California, if both parents oppose a visitation request from a grandparent, the courts have ruled there is a presumption that visitation will not be in the child's best interest.
If one parent opposes a visitation request by a grandparent and the other parent does not oppose visitation, this presumption does not apply.
Where one parent has sole legal and physical custody of a child, and that parent opposes the visitation request of the grandparent, the presumption against the grandparent's visitation has been upheld by the courts.
Even if your situation means there is a presumption that visitation will not be in the child's best interest, we may still be able to help you win visitation rights by persuading the court with facts and evidence that the presumption is incorrect in your case. This is where having an experienced lawyer on your case can make all the difference.
