The bond between a grandparent and grandchild represents one of life’s most enduring relationships. When this relationship is threatened, grandparents in the State of Texas have leverage to preserve and protect their rights. In certain cases, grandparents may be granted visitation rights or even conservatorship of the child.
Protecting the best interest of the child. Always.
At KoonsFuller, we believe in using all legal means necessary to preserve what is in the best interests of the child. Pursuing your rights as a grandparent may be particularly beneficial to the child, especially in cases where:
- A divorce threatens to end or alter the grandparent/grandchild relationship
- The child has lived with the grandparents for more than 6 months
- The child has been subjected to parental abuse or neglect
- The court has terminated the parent-child relationship
- The parents are deceased, incarcerated or have been ruled incompetent
For a grandparent, few things in life are valued more than their relationship with their grandchild. If you have questions about your rights as a grandparent, contact us to arrange a no-obligation consultation.
