Grandparents' Rights in Georgia

Douglas County Family Law Attorneys

Divorce does not just affect the two spouses and their children. The effects of a marriage dissolution spread to close family and friends, as well. Grandparents can be particularly affected by a divorce, especially when their grandchildren are involved and the custodial parent doesn't want the grandparents to remain involved in the children's lives.

Do I have rights to visitation as a grandparent?

Grandpa and grandson - grandparent custody rights in Georgia

Is your son or daughter getting divorced, jeopardizing your relationship with your grandchild/grandchildren? Maybe the divorce is already under way or complete and you are being prevented from visiting your grandchildren. If so, you can fight for visitation rights.

Georgia Code § 19-7-3(b) states that any grandparent shall have the right to file for visitation rights for a minor child in any action concerning custody, a divorce, termination of the parental rights of either parent, or adoption of the minor child by a blood relative or stepparent. You need to act soon, or else you will forfeit your ability to file a successful action for visitation rights. Speak with a family lawyer in Dallas, GA
