Grandparents Rights and Custody

March 20, 2019

Grandparents can play an important role in helping raise a grandchild.  When the relationship goes from helping to raising the grandchild without help from the parents, that is when a Grandparent should know their rights.  

 

Visitation statutes do not give a grandparent an absolute right to visitation with a grandchild however, in Texas, a court can authorize visitation with the child or a primary custodial relationship with a child if: 

 1. the parents are divorced

2. the parent abused or neglected the child

3. the parent is in jail

4. the child has lived with the grandparent for at least 6 months

 

Every case involves a unique set of facts and any party seeking court intervention should get a consult with a family lawyer to understand their rights.
