Divorce and child custody issues don’t just affect the parents and children, it affects the whole extended family including grandparents and other close relatives. In some circumstances, these family members may have some legal rights to the children. It’s important to have an attorney who understands these complex relationships and can advocate to protect the important connections between children and extended family.
This is a complex area of the law that is very fact-intensive and requires an experienced family law attorney to help you navigate your options both in and out of court.
