Establishing the visitation rights of grandparents can be a complicated process and must be approached with the guidance of an experienced Arizona family lawyer. Grandparents need to know that the marital status of the grandchild’s parents affects their rights to request court-ordered visitation.
The court will consider many factors when determining the best interests of the children, including:
- The historical relationship between the child and grandparents
- The motivation of the parties seeking visitation rights to the child
- The motivation of any party seeking to deny visitation rights
- The quantity of time requested
At our Chandler law firm, we will explain these factors to you and help you determine how they will affect your case.
