Burnsville Child Visitation Attorney

For most grandparents, there is perhaps no greater joy than spending time with their grandkids. For some, the simple pleasure of spending time with grandkids may be intentionally or unintentionally blocked during divorce proceedings or after divorce once child custody has been decided.

Under Minnesota law, grandparents can be granted visitation during divorce proceedings. Visitation rights can be granted if it is in the best interests of the child (or children) and if it does not hinder the relationship between parent and child.

When grandparents are concerned about the well-being of their grandchildren or when they are the primary caregiver, they can be appointed guardianship or given custody. They must prove that the child's parent is unfit to care for the children. Our Lakeville grandparents' rights attorney can show that the parent is mentally or physically unfit because of:

  • Neglect
  • Abuse
  • Abandonment
  • Domestic violence
  • Mental illness
  • Alcohol dependency
  • Drug use

If you are a grandparent interested in exploring your rights and options, Dwire Law Offices, P.A., can assist you.
