Protecting and Establishing Your Parental Rights
At Walker Law, we believe children are far more successful in life when both parents have visitation or some level of parental custody of their children except in special situations such as drug use, abuse, criminal activity or other areas where a parent may not be currently fit to take on such responsibility.
Whether you are the current primary caregiver or are the one working to support the children that may not necessarily be required to remain the same depending upon the recommendation of the courts provided you can establish clear, undeniable evidence this should change. By listening to your unique situation and desired outcome, we develop an argument tailored to you, the children and any special circumstances surrounding your case to help establish your parental rights.
In addition to parental rights, grandparent’s rights are protected under the laws of the State of California if certain conditions are met. Any grandparent who has formed a loving bond with their grandchild should not have his relationship with the child destroyed when the parents are getting divorced. A child’s best interests include maintaining all positive loving familial relationships.
However, if there is not a preexisting grandparent relationship prior to the divorce there is no legal basis to enforce grandparent’s rights. A grandparent does not have a legal right to initiate such a relationship after divorce unless the parent’s consent.
