Grandparent And Third-Party Visitation Rights

If your child is going through divorce, how will this affect your grandparent visitation rights? After the death of your child, has the other parent blocked your access to the grandchildren? Are you worried that a parent is neglecting a child and social services might step in at some point? What are the custody and visitation rights for grandparents and other interested parties?

At The Law Offices of Ossie Brown, our Baton Rouge family lawyers can examine your situation and explain your legal options under Louisiana law. While you must know that your rights are not equal to a parent's, you do have rights. We will carefully listen to your concerns and then formulate a plan to help you achieve your goals.

As in any child custody determination, the best interests of the child are paramount. This is a multi-factor test that allows a court discretion when making custody and visitation decisions.

Aggressive Representation When Necessary

From the time your visits with a grandchild are limited, we will work quickly to restore a visitation schedule that allows you to continue to build those special grandparent bonds. Our attorneys are here to help whether the issues started after a divorce was finalized or child protection has become involved.

We are often able to secure a favorable solution through negotiation or mediation. But our attorneys are always prepared to take a case to trial when necessary to meet your goals.

Solving Legal Problems

Our mission is to become the law firm you turn to with any legal problem. You can schedule an appointment to discuss your situation by calling our offices at 225-424-7388, or sending us a message summarizing your concerns.
