It is not uncommon for family disputes and other issues to disrupt the vitally important relationships between grandparents and their grandchildren. Before or after a New York divorce within your family, or in a range of other situations, you may have important objectives involving your rights as a grandparent to have contact and be involved in the lives of your grandchildren.

Caring And Focused Representation Regarding Custody And Visitation

New York state statutes and case law governing grandparents' rights leave considerable room for interpretation. At Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy LLP (CPS&S), skilled and empathetic New York City grandparents' rights attorneys are prepared to advise clients on matters concerning:

  • Grandparents' attempts to establish enforceable visitation rights that allow reasonable access to their grandchildren
  • Child custody cases in which grandparents may have either stepped into a parental role for a lengthy period in the absence of a parent (legally speaking, in loco parentis) or developed serious concerns about the safety and upbringing of grandchildren
