Grandparents Rights

Child visitation rights, under certain circumstances, may extend to grandparents as well. In many situations, the grandparents' play a critical role in the child's life, providing them with love, support, nurturing, and stability. New York courts recognize the bond between grandchildren and grandparents, and have the authority to preserve that bond by granting grandparents visitation rights under certain circumstances (such as the death of a parent or unjustified termination of a close relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren).
