Many conflicts and legal struggles involving families, particularly grandparents, can be resolved through skilled and tempered negotiations. Courts often work to help families find common ground and reach an agreement that works in the best interests of all involved. However, there are times when negotiations and mediation does not yield a solution that works for families and grandparents. Litigation may then be necessary. Shapiro Law Group, PC, has the litigating experience to ensure the most favorable resolution possible when the rights of grandparents are at stake. We also have the compassion to navigate the most complex and contentious litigation cases that involve families.
Grandparents are often able to negotiate visitation or protect their rights and role in grandchildren’s lives. When that role is threatened and the welfare, safety, and health of a grandchild is compromised or at risk, a grandparent can file for visitation or guardianship. If the case reaches litigation, a successful outcome will protect the grandparents’ rights and the relationship with the grandchild.
Visitation Rights Investigations
When a grandparent has to prove the denial of visitation or a relationship with a grandchild will be detrimental to that child, it may be a difficult endeavor. Shapiro Law Group, PC, will invest the time needed to gather the facts of the case and any evidence that may help a grandparent protect their rights. This may include documents and correspondences, medical reports, and testimony from character witnesses or other family members. Testimony or reports from professionals involved with family members or the child, such as teachers, therapists, and doctors, may all help a grandparent’s case if it reaches litigation.
