Child Custody And Grandparents’ Rights
In most cases, grandparents just want visitation with their grandchildren. However, in some circumstances, grandparents request custody to protect and care for the child. You can file for custody of your grandchild if he or she is no longer under the care of his or her parents. For example, if law enforcement removed your grandchild from the family home due to substance abuse issues, you can petition for custody. Then, your grandchild can avoid going into foster care.
You can also petition for custody of your grandchild if he or she has been living with you for at least six months. You must file for custody within six months of your grandchild moving out, if applicable.
Our Golden, CO, grandparents’ rights lawyer can go over your case to see if you qualify for custody. If you don’t, we can explore other options that can help you and your grandchild.
