Defending grandparents' rights in Missouri

Family law encompasses a wide range of matters, including divorce, paternity, financial support and even non-traditional custody arrangements. In Missouri, there are laws specifically pertaining to grandparents' rights for visitation and custody. When cases involve complex custody matters or visitation issues, it is typically beneficial to work with a team that understands how to carefully and thoughtfully navigate these circumstances. 

Missouri courts may grant grandparents reasonable visitation rights in specific situations. These rights may be granted if the grandparents have unreasonably been denied access to the kids or have acted as the guardians of the children in the past. The court may be favorable to the grandparents if one parent of the child is deceased or if a home study has determined that visitation is in the best interests of the children. 

Our team understands that custody arrangements must meet the needs of the children involved and always protect their best interests. In some cases, it is optimal for children to remain under the custody of their grandparents or to enjoy court-ordered visitation time. No matter how complex your situation may be, a family law attorney can seek an arrangement that will be suitable on a long-term basis. 

If you have been denied visitation with your grandchildren or feel that your rights have been violated, you are entitled to seek a legal resolution to your issue. Grandparents' rights cases are complex, but a complete case evaluation can determine how you should move forward. Our team is ready to discuss your situation and advise you on an appropriate course of action.
