South Florida Grandparental Rights Attorney
Family Lawyer Serving Miami Dade, Fort Lauderdale & Palm Beach
South Florida family law attorney Sean Sweeney works hard to ensure Grandparents’ rights pertaining to the visitation of their grandchildren. When a divorce occurs where children are involved, not only do the parents risk losing precious time with their children during child custody and visitation battles, but the grandparents risk losing time with the kids as well. Especially in cases where one parent is granted sole custody, the grandparents on the non-custodial parent’s side may not have the opportunity to spend valuable time with their grandchildren. A family lawyer can help to make sure grandparents do not miss out on the lives of their grandchildren.
Grandparent Visitation Rights in Florida
As an experienced family attorney, Mr. Sweeney knows how to get the court to grant visitation rights to grandparents. If the court determines that visitation would be in the best interests of the grandchild, visitation will be granted to the grandparent. To determine this, the court will consider all factors relating to the child, the parents and the grandparents, and whether or not the grandparent has had significant contact with the grandchild previously. Because fit parents have their child’s best interests at heart, the court will consider their outlook and wishes as well. In cases involving divorce, some parents may foster bad feelings toward their in-laws and as a result may not want their children to spend time with them. In these cases it is especially important that you seek lawyer representation from a South Florida family law attorney.
Grandparents who fear they are at risk of losing visitation rights with their grandchildren will need to seek legal assistance from a competent and compassionate family law attorney. An experienced lawyer will know the best way to address grandparental visitation rights and will work very hard to make sure your grandchildren do not miss out on spending valuable time with their grandparents.
