Working To Preserve Cherished Relationships With Your Grandchildren
As a grandparent, you are an important part of your grandchild’s life and development. If you find yourself in an uncertain situation in which your grandchild’s parents have gotten a divorce, passed away or are unable to care for the child, our team can help. At Jeff Gilbert Law Office, our Brazoria County grandparents’ rights attorneys are committed to working with our clients and helping them to defend their rights, as well as the best interests of the child.
There are several circumstances which could necessitate you needing to take action to preserve your role in your grandchild’s life. For example, the child’s parents could have gotten a divorce and your son or daughter is not the custodial parent. In some situations, the custodial parent may try to block you from seeing your grandchild. No matter what you are currently facing, our team has the skill and determination you need to address the issues swiftly.
