If you are interested in acquiring grandparent rights during a child custody case in Statesville, NC, I am here to help.
In many families, the grandparents are heavily involved with child rearing activities, and in some situations, they are even the primary caretakers. Although parents are most often the key players during child custody disputes, grandparents can also have a say with respect to visitation rights, and in some cases, custody.
Unlike child custody laws, statutes pertaining to grandparent rights are constantly in a state of flux. Whether you are a grandparent seeking visitation rates for a beloved grandchild or you are a parent interested in ensuring your children’s grandparents are able to visit with them regularly, I, W. Sloan Goforth, Attorney at Law, am here to help you understand these laws and how they pertain to your situation.
Located in Statesville, North Carolina, I recognize that custody and visitation disputes, especially ones pertaining to grandparent rights, can be emotionally and physically exhausting. As I work on your case, I will ease some of this burden and ensure your interests either as a grandparent or a parent are protected.
I encourage you to keep in mind that, in cases involving custody or visitation, the courts consider the best interests of the child first and foremost. As part of this process, courts often consider whether the grandparents are capable of meeting both the basic physical and emotional needs of the child when deliberating grandparent rights.
If you would like to know more about grandparent rights and how they apply to your case, please reach out to me. I would be more than happy to sit down with you and provide you with a free consultation.
