There are two ways to secure legal recognition of grandparent custody or visitation rights under Arizona law. The attorneys of Lasiter & Jackson are ready to advise you about both approaches. Contact us in Phoenix if you have questions about your right to establish or maintain custody and/or regular access to a grandchild, or if you are a parent who needs to know the extent of grandparent visitation rights in your situation.
Most grandparents who are interested in securing regular visitation rights with their grandchildren will benefit from the advice of an experienced lawyer. Although Arizona has a statute that covers grandparent visitation, is does not automatically confer visitation rights upon a grandparent. Parents generally have the right to raise their children as they see fit, and it can be difficult for a grandparent to establish visitation rights over the objections of one or both parents, whether divorced or unmarried.
Our familiarity with the Arizona law relating to grandparent visitation can help you understand the nature and extent of your rights. Our attorneys can discuss any objections on the part of the parents and see if there is a way of meeting them on mutually acceptable terms. If that is not possible, our lawyers can give you a clear understanding of your chance of establishing visitation rights in a contested court hearing.
At Lasiter & Jackson, we provide understanding and compassion for the delicate issues associated with non-parent custody and visitation. We are committed to obtaining positive results for each of our clients. We pledge to do our best to provide qualified case assessment at a reasonable cost.
