Much can change for a family in the wake of a divorce— for extended family members as well. In circumstances of child custody disputes, grandparents often find themselves with limited access to their grandchildren. While Nevada law does leave much of the decision up to the parents, it is possible to legally assert the rights of grandparents if they have previously been denied access.
At Ford & Friedman, we work almost exclusively in the area of family law, and are well-versed in the challenges all family members face following a divorce. If you are a grandparent that needs to petition for grandparents' rights in order to maintain access to your grandchild, then we are ready to hear your story, assess your options and, if necessary, aggressively fight for your rights in the courtroom.
Fight for the visitation you and your grandchildren deserve. Contact our skilled Henderson family attorneys at (702) 904-9898 today.
When you find yourself cut off from your grandchildren, you will have the opportunity to petition for access to the child, even if the child's parents wish to restrict your access. Like other custody and visitation matters, the key in these cases is arguing that maintaining some form of the grandparent-grandchild relationship is in the grandchild's best interests. At our firm, we recognize that this can sometimes be difficult, but have an incisive understanding of what court is looking for petitioners to demonstrate in these cases.
Our firm is also prepared to help other individuals petition for access to children—even if they are not related to the children by blood. The first step in these matters is to evaluate the petitioner's circumstances and determine whether or not they have a viable argument for visitation and/or access. Our team is ready to help you determine this and, if possible, will aggressively assert the child's best interests on your behalf.
