Grandparents' Rights

There is no disputing the role that grandparents play in their grandchildren's lives. The love, care and nurturing grandparents provide gives grandchildren a sense of security as well as the family's legacy. When parents get divorced, these important relationships can sometimes be jeopardized. What rights do Texas grandparents have in these situations, and what, if anything, can be done to protect them?

These are difficult questions, and the assistance of a qualified Plano family law attorney can be extremely helpful. At The Barbknecht Firm, P.C., we represent families in Richardson and throughout the Dallas Metroplex in all aspects of grandparents' rights cases. We have a complete understanding of the law in these matters, and we know what it takes to give you the best chance of success in these often emotional and complex legal matters.

Understanding Texas Law Regarding Grandparents' Rights

According to the law, grandparents are not automatically granted any type of custody or visitation rights with their grandchildren. Texas law assumes that the parents are in the best position to determine the best interests of their children and permits parents to deny the grandparents access.

There are certain circumstances where grandparents can seek a court order to gain access to their grandchildren, however, there are significant hurdles that need to be overcome. We will conduct a thorough review of your case and provide an honest assessment regarding the viability of your claim. If we accept your case, we will pursue every available option in an effort to secure the access to your grandchildren you want.
