Our firm is proud to represent Grandparents who are fighting to be a part of their grandchildren’s lives. In Texas, Grandparents have no right to see their grandchildren absent a court order. Let’s meet and discuss your options and what I can do to help meet your goals.
In Texas, a court can authorize grandparent visitation of a grandchild if visitation is in the child’s best interest, and one of the following circumstances exists:
- The parents divorced;
- The parent abused or neglected the child;
- The parent has been incarcerated, found incompetent, or died;
- A court-order terminated the parent-child relationship; or
- The child has lived with the grandparent for at least six months.
It is also possible in some circumstances to petition a court for custody of your grandchildren.
