Dallas Grandparents' Rights Attorneys
What Are Grandparents’ Rights in Texas?
Parents are not the only ones with rights to custody and visitation when they obtain a divorce. Oftentimes, grandparents lose their right to visit a child when a bitter parent is granted custody by the court. If you are a grandparent in this situation, a Dallas grandparents' rights lawyer from our firm can help you take your case to court and obtain the right to remain a part of your grandchild's life.
Under Texas Family Code § 153.432, Suit for Possession or Access by Grandparent, a grandparent can file a new lawsuit or a suit for modification so that they can received a court order that grants them access to their grandchild or grandchildren.
Can a Grandparent File a Petition with the Family Court?
When it comes to grandparents' rights to visitation (possession and access), there are certain criteria that must be met in order for a grandparent to file suit for possession of or access to their grandchild. The grandparent must overcome the presumption that the parent is acting in the best interests of the child; this means that you must prove that you having possession or access is in the child's best interests.
You can also request possession or access if you can prove that the parent is incapable of caring for the child due to incarceration, death, or court-decided incompetence. O’Neil Wysocki P.C. can help you build a strong case and file suit to gain possession of or access to your grandchild or grandchildren.
