Long Island Grandparents’ Rights Attorney

Fighting for the Rights of Grandparents in Long Island, New York City & the Tri-State Area

In many child custody and visitation disputes, grandparents are denied access to their grandchildren despite their involvement in raising the child or their positive influence on the children involved. Though their rights may not be as extensive as parents’ rights, a grandparent still has rights that deserve to be protected.

If a court order or backlash from a parent is preventing you from seeing your grandchildren, seek representation from the team at Jonathan E. Kroll & Associates, PLLC. Our Long Island grandparents’ rights attorney is committed to helping you remain a part of your beloved grandchildren’s lives.

Seeking Visitation Rights

If your son or daughter is navigating a divorce, you might be concerned about maintaining a relationship with your grandchildren, especially if there is resentment or bitterness between any of the parties.

Every state has different laws regarding the rights of grandparents. In New York, grandparents seeking visitation rights have the burden of proof to show their legal right to court-ordered time with the child.

When determining whether to approve visitation rights for grandparents, courts may consider:

  • The grandparent’s relationship with the child
  • The grandparent’s relationship with the child’s parents
  • How frequently the child has contact with the grandparent
  • Any history of abuse by the grandparent
  • How granting a grandparent visitation rights might affect a parent’s time with his/her child

Seeking Custody

In certain situations, a grandparent might be granted custody of a child if the parents are unfit to properly care for the child. Unfortunately, it can be harder for a grandparent to obtain custody than for a parent. At Jonathan E. Kroll & Associates, PLLC, we fight hard to help grandparents obtain custody if it is in the best interests of the child or children involved.
