Sometimes situations arise where a child’s best interests cannot be served by the parents; instead the grandparents are in the best position to provide a safe, loving, and financially stable environment. The Law Offices of Seidner & Associates, PC has represented countless grandparents in obtaining visitation or custody rights.
The Domestic Relations Law § 72 governs grandparent’s rights in these scenarios. In some cases, the parents of a child are deceased and the grandparents choose to step in as primary caretakers of the child. In other cases, parents simply cannot adequately raise or provide for their children. Mr. Seidner has successfully achieved grandparent custody in situations where parents had drug addictions, were incarcerated, abandoned their children, abused their children, or suffered from severe mental illness. Although these situations can be heart wrenching, the ultimate outcome is a new beginning for a child.
