Remain in contact with your grandchild, even if the child's parents or parent does not wish you to, through Arizona's grandparents' rights laws. These laws put in place certain protections for grandparents so that they may continue to see their grandchildren. Our attorney at Claridge Law Group, PLLC, gladly explains these rights to concerned grandparents to our clients. Our wish is to alleviate the worries you feel upon losing contact with your loved ones and give you hope that the relationship may be preserved.

Grandparents' rights cases often follow on the heels of a divorce or a death of one of the child's parents. Sometimes, a grandparent can apply for custody of a grandchild if a parent is deemed "Missing" by the courts. Regardless of the circumstances, you ultimately must prove that your relationship is in the best interest of the child or children.
The court reviews conditions & circumstances when you apply for visitation or guardianship:
Even if a situation seems hopeless, you have options. As your family law attorney, we interview you thoroughly to understand the details of your circumstances. We also advise you as to the best way to convince the court to allow you access to the child.
The court may require that your visitation occur when your son or daughter has custody of the child, or may require that you prove that the parent who currently has custody is "unfit" to parent. This tactic often leads to a difficult emotional decision, as you may be attempting to prove that your own son or daughter should not be a parent. We compassionately guide you through this process, keeping in mind that our primary concern is for that of the child.
