When Grandparents Seek Custody Or Visitation

As a grandparent, you want what is best for your grandchildren — a safe home where they will be given the care and the love they need and deserve. When this isn't happening, it can be heartbreaking to stand by and watch.

Our experienced and respected Michigan lawyers at Eisenberg & Spilman, PLLC, want to help you protect your grandparents' rights and learn about the legal options you have to protect your grandchildren.

Assisting Michigan Grandparents With Protecting Their Legal Rights

Based in Birmingham, our firm has been providing reliable legal assistance to grandparents throughout Michigan in matters involving guardianships, adoption and grandparenting time.

In Michigan, grandparents do not have unlimited rights to visitation/parenting time with their grandchildren. Under certain state laws, however, a grandparent is able to take legal action when his or her grandchild is:

  • Not receiving proper care
  • Has been or is being neglected, or physically or sexually abused
  • Is being exposed to drug and alcohol use or other offensive or illegal activity

In cases where a parent has passed away, is on active military duty or has been incarcerated, a grandparent may be able to establish parenting time with his or her grandchildren.

Whatever the reason you are pursuing your grandparent rights, our Oakland County grandparents' rights' attorneys are determined to help you find the best solution to your problem. We understand how much you value your relationship with your grandchild, and we are fully prepared to assist you with finding the most effective way to protect that bond you two share.
