Grandparents' Rights Problems? Pick Porter!

Grandparents' Rights Lawyer in Jacksonville

What Are My Rights as a Grandparent?

A Jacksonville family law attorney should be consulted if you have been denied grandparents' visitation rights by one or both parents. As a knowledgeable and dedicated lawyer, the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. can review your case and discuss your legal alternatives regarding visitation. You will need skilled legal representation to protect your interests and fight for your visitation rights.

In some divorces, grandparents' visitation rights can be a volatile issue. The laws regarding grandparents' visitation have changed considerably over the years. At one point in time, grandparents were allowed to visit their grandchildren if the court considered that it was in the best interest of the child, even if a spouse disagreed. Nowadays, if grandparents are denied visitation rights, they must not only prove that the visits are in the best interest of the child, but that the child is also in danger of being hurt or harmed.

Legal Representation for Grandparents in Florida

Grandparents can play a key role in a child's upbringing, including taking care of the child when the parents are working, giving advice and providing emotional as well as financial support. It can be extremely upsetting to the grandparents and the child when parents prohibit visitation. In such a situation, the grandparents can file a petition with the court requesting visitation rights. The court will consider many factors in the case, including the parents' constitutional rights in the matter, as well as:

  • The age and mental health of the grandparents
  • The child's prior relationship with the grandparents (length and quality)
  • To what degree the grandparents support the child's relationship with his or her parents
