Supporting Grandparents' Rights

Grandparents seeking to play a larger role in their grandchildren's lives face an uphill battle. Texas laws regarding grandparents' rights are continually changing, making it difficult for grandparents to navigate.

At Short Law Firm, PC, in Plano, Texas, I understand how the laws governing grandparents' rights work. I will put my experience to work for you no matter what rights you are seeking — custody, visitation or adoption.

Custody, Visitation And Adoption

The relationship between a grandparent and grandchild is truly unique. Grandchildren who grow up close to their grandparents find that the bond they share is unlike any other in their lives.

In a society where divorce is common, many grandparent-grandchild relationships are affected. When one parent has sole custody of a child, the parents of the noncustodial parent may lose valuable time with their grandchild. I understand how important your grandchildren are to you — I will work hard to help you establish and maintain your visitation rights.

In many households across Texas, children are subject to abuse, neglect and other damaging actions. More than ever, the role of the grandparent may become critically important. When a child's safety or emotional well-being is at risk, I work hard to help grandparents get custody of the child. When adoption by a grandparent is the best option, I use my solid background and experience to seek that outcome.
