Dealing With Parental Rights and Grandparent Custody
We treat parental rights — and grandparents’ rights — with the utmost care. However, we do recognize that there are cases where children are far better off in another’s care. The law takes into consideration what is in “the best interest of the child” — and we will take the necessary actions to uphold it.
Finances are another important part of raising children in which we take a practical approach in child guardianship cases. Grandparents or others fulfilling the obligations of parenting should be able to make important decisions and have access to child support and take advantage of tax deductions, when appropriate and possible.
