Kansas City Attorneys Litigating For Grandparent’s Rights

What rights to grandparents have?

Whether you are a parent or a grandparent, you may be concerned about the rights a grandparent has to a child. During a split or divorce, you may be concerned that it may have a negative impact on the relationship between a grandparent and a grandchild, and you may wonder, “What rights do grandparents have?” At Fisher Law LLC, our attorneys value family and we recognize the role that grandparents may play in a child’s life. We also recognize a parent’s right to keep a dangerous grandparent out of a child’s life.

We provide the knowledgeable, yet compassionate legal representation parents and grandparents need when access to the child is threatened by an impending divorce or split between the child’s parents. When you work with our firm, you benefit from a team of highly qualified attorneys who are well-respected by the legal community.

Best Interests Of The Child Doctrine

Essentially, the court determines if visitation by the grandparent would be in the child’s best interests, or if it would somehow endanger the child’s health or impair the child’s emotional development. The court may order visitation if the court believes that such visitation would be in the child’s best interests, after the criteria listed in the Missouri statute has been met. To learn more about grandparent’s rights, we encourage you to speak with a member of our legal team.
