Child Custody - Family Law Legal Blogs Posted by Joseph E. Marvin - Lawyers.com

It can sometimes be challenging for members of many Minnesota families to spend time together. This is especially true after a divorce or when there are unhealthy family dynamics. While it is very common for parents to sort out issues of co-parenting, custody and visitation in the courtroom, these issues typically involve grandparents much less often. However, grandparents’ rights are an emerging and rapidly developing area of the law.

Rules about grandparents’ rights vary from state to state. In every jurisdiction, the best interests of the child is the determining factor for custody and visitation. In Minnesota, visitation rights can be granted in certain circumstances such as in the death of a parent. Grandparents’ rights often prove invaluable to a child’s best interests and ensuring that family relationships are protected.
