Assisting grandparents exercise their rights

There is no doubt that the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is unique, but in child custody cases, the rights of grandparents are not always clear. Sometimes, it is necessary to turn to an experienced attorney to guide grandparents through the legal maze.

Even though certain cases in Texas have prioritized parental rights over those grandparents may exercise, the window on grandparental rights has not been shut and it is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of relevant cases in order to keep the window open. Our founding lawyer fully understands the requisite cases and helps grandparents assert their rights, however limited they may seem.

In addition to knowing relevant case law, our lawyers also consider unique out of the box solutions to custody issues based on the party's individual circumstances. Instead of turning to a courtroom, it may be possible to come up with a creative solution that satisfies all parties involved and lawyers at our firm do not shy away from providing those. Our founding partner's experience as a mediator can prove invaluable in that situation.

Custody cases are emotionally fraught cases with all parties feeling vulnerable and fragile and lawyers at our firm, especially our founding partner, take a caring approach in order to put clients at ease. Divorce cases involve myriad issues, and rather than going from place to place to get legal advice, it is often better to approach a lawyer who can provide guidance, such as those at our law firm.
