Supporting the rights of grandparents

For many grandparents, spending time with their grandchildren is one of the most important and special opportunities they experience in life. Unfortunately, some grandparents are not able to visit their grandchildren for a variety of reasons, such as a family dispute. At Johnson & Johnson, Attorneys at Law, we work hard to support the rights of grandparents who are going through this in Belleville, and other cities in of Illinois.

When it comes to grandparents' rights, there are a host of issues that may have an impact on the outcome of the situation. For example, if a grandparent decides to take their case to court, they should recognize that their grandchild's parents need to be unfit in one form or another (incarceration, incompetence, etc.). Grandparents should be fully prepared for court and recognize any relevant details that may have an impact on their case. If a court finds that the parents of a child are fit, they have the right to deny visitation rights to the child's grandparent in the state of Illinois.

In addition to visitation issues, some grandparents also have concerns about the well-being of their grandchild and seek custody rights. As with visitation rights, it is vital for grandparents to review the law, identify any relevant details that may impact the outcome of their case and form a solid understanding of which steps to take next. On our page which covers the establishment of paternity and grandparents' rights, you can read more on the visitation rights of grandparents.
