Georgia Divorce Grandparents' Rights
In certain instances, grandparents have important rights relative to their grandchildren, and those rights sometimes require legal protection. This is especially the case when grandparents have acted as the primary caregiver of the children for a significant period of time due to the inability of either or both parents to care for the children. Depending upon the individual facts and circumstances of the case, grandparents may have the right to file for visitation or even to seek custody of their grandchildren. Grandparents can also seek to be awarded temporary or permanent guardianship of their grandchildren. In other instances, grandparents may adopt their grandchildren if there’s been a termination of both parents’ rights. Regardless of the circumstances, The Zdrilich Law Group is knowledgeable of Georgia law related to grandparents’ rights. We can work with you to ensure both that your rights are protected and that the best interests of your grandchildren are preserved.
Parental Inability and Grandparents’ Rights
Grandparents become involved as caregivers to minor children for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, one or both parents have died. Other times, one or both parents are unable to care for their children due to illness, injury, disability, incarceration, addiction or substance abuse. Finally, one or both parents may be active members of the military who are called to serve overseas.
