As the grandparent of a child, your relationship is likely very important to you. However, after a divorce, you may be restricted from seeing your grandchild.

Seek Custody of Your Grandchildren
While the courts place children with their parents whenever possible, there may be situations that call for intervention. The court may decide on their own that the child should be placed with another guardian, which is where you can step in. In other cases, you may need to bring issues to the attention of the family court, such as if you have witnessed abuse. An experienced Sugar Land family law attorney can show the court how you having custody rights is in the best interests of the child.
A few circumstances that may lead to custody rights being granted to grandparents include:
- Substance abuse
- Criminal conduct
- Neglect/abuse of the children
- Unfit parents
- Amount of time grandparents may have had possession of the child(dren)
The courts may consider a number of factors when making a decision about custody. This may include your age and health, the established relationship, and your financial ability to provide for the child.
