Child Custody and Grandparents’ Rights in the DFW Metroplex
In the state of Texas, the law makes no consideration of grandparents’ rights to visitation. While grandparents technically have no legal standing to pursue visitation rights, in some situations, a judge may grant those rights when it is the best interests of the child. If you have questions regarding your rights to child custody, it is crucial to talk with an experienced lawyer who understands the process of visitation rights.
In Plano, at the Shapiro Law Firm, our family law attorneys have represented individuals and families for more than 40 years in Collin County and the Dallas-Fort Worth area. We will work with you to establish your legal right to spend time with your grandchild and do whatever is legally possible to protect your custody and visitation rights. We can also provide honest advice about what is likely to occur in your situation.
Looking Out for the Best Interests of the Child
In every case involving child custody and visitation rights, the most important consideration is the best interests of children. If your son or daughter’s parental rights have not been terminated, and you wish to ask a judge to grant you grandparents’ rights to visitation, you must be able to prove that the child’s parents are unfit.
As would be expected, cases involving grandparents’ rights are often filled with emotion, stress and tension. Having a skilled attorney on your side can ensure that a rational approach is taken to your case and that your case is addressed in terms of what is best for the well-being of the child.
