About Grandparents' Rights
fathers' rights, grandparent's rights has been a late-evolving area of law. Legislators
have been slowly recognizing the important role the grandparent can play
in the life of the grandchild. The law has increasingly recognized the
bonds between grandparent and grandchild, especially when the parents
have not been providing proper care or after the passing of the parent(s).
The law requires that a grandparent or any third party first prove "extraordinary
circumstances," but such a high level of proof is proper considering
that a child may be taken from their mother or father. Then, as in all
custody cases, the court will seek to provide for the best interests of
the child. Many factors will be evaluated, including the age and health
of the child, his or her preference, the health, finances, and lifestyle
of the grandparents, the existing bond, and the grandparents' ability
to generally serve the best interest of the child.
