In Arizona, grandparents are allowed the right to see and spend time with their grandkids. Quality time spent with grandparents typically benefits both the child and the grandparents. Unfortunately, divorce or other family tension can sometimes threaten the grandparent/grandchild relationship.
If a parent with custody will not let a grandparent visit with his or her grandchild, the grandparent may petition the court to allow visitation. In all cases, the court’s primary concern is what is in the best interests of the child. Don’t let a family disagreement keep you from maintaining your relationships with your grandchildren. Instead, call us so we can protect your relationship and prepare a petition for filing with the court.
