Fuerst, Carrier & Ogden

Over 50 Years of Dedicated Family Law Experience

Resolving Issues Surrounding Grandparents’ Rights

Grandparents have a vested interest in being part of their grandchildren’s lives. However, a bitter divorce or other family problems can result in grandparents being shut out of the lives of their grandchildren. When this happens, it is important to understand what rights you have and what options are available for continuing a relationship with your most precious loved ones.

At Fuerst, Carrier & Ogden, in Lake Charles, our attorneys are dedicated to helping people resolve even the most complicated family law matters. To learn more about grandparents’ rights, call our lawyers at 337-436-3332.

Tackling Difficult Problems

There are any number of problems that may lead to a grandparent no longer being allowed to visit a grandchild, including:

  • The separation of parents
  • Divorce
  • The death of a parent
  • Incarceration of a parent
  • Lack of contact with a parent

In some cases, parents may be dealing with issues, such as addiction, which leaves them unfit to care for their children. In these difficult cases, it may make sense to attempt to adopt the grandchild. This can be hard because in order to do so the birth parents must terminate their parental rights, either voluntarily or by court order. We will work hard to show that it is in the child’s best interests to remain in the care of his or her grandparents.

“Mr. Ogden was so kind and understanding! He spent three hours helping me figure out what to do during our consultation in order to get custody of our niece and nephew, and when our hearing date came and the hearing officer wanted to reschedule us (which would have caused us to pay more), he went in and argued for us, and we were seen that day! I knew exactly what to do and what was going to happen in the hearing too, so there were no surprises. Everything went great and now we have custody of our niece and nephew! We hope to have Mr. Ogden help us with adoption next!!”
