Ensuring a Secure Future for Your Grandchildren

Are you a grandparent seeking to maintain a loving and stable relationship with your grandchildren in Pennsylvania? At Wenger Law, we understand the importance of family connections, and we’re here to help you navigate the legal intricacies of grandparents’ rights in the state of Pennsylvania.

Understanding Grandparents’ Rights

In Pennsylvania, grandparents have certain legal rights when it comes to visitation and custody of their grandchildren. These rights can become especially crucial in situations where the child’s parents are divorced, separated, or unable to provide proper care.

When Can Grandparents Seek Visitation or Custody?

Pennsylvania law allows grandparents to seek visitation or custody under the following circumstances:

  1. Child’s Best Interests: The court’s primary consideration is always the child’s best interests. If a grandparent can demonstrate that visitation or custody is in the child’s best interests, the court may grant such rights.
  2. Parental Obstruction: If a grandparent is being unreasonably prevented from seeing their grandchildren by the child’s parents, they may seek legal intervention.
  3. Parental Incapacity: In cases where the child’s parents are unable to provide proper care due to factors such as substance abuse, incarceration, or neglect, grandparents may pursue custody.
