The Lincoln Law Firm, PLLC understands grandparents have many concerns about their relationships with their grandchildren.

Grandparents' Visitation

Grandparents usually seek court-ordered visitation when they have already established a solid relationship with the grandchildren. It must be proved that it is in the best interest of the child to continue the relationship. If the grandparents have always been denied contact with the grandchild, it may be difficult to prove that developing a relationship is in the best interest of the child. Attorney Christine Lincoln can assess your unique situation and advise you of your options.

If the child is in immediate danger because of drug use, alcohol abuse or physical abuse, you may want to take steps to seek custody of the child.
