Is an attorney necessary for this?

Even though grandparents do have rights in certain situations, this can become complicated legally. The Arizona family court allows parents to have most of the decision-making control over their children, so grandparents need legal assistance to properly evaluate what, if any, rights they have to visitation and custody. Your attorney will:

  • Inform you of the rights that grandparents have
  • Thoroughly investigate the facts of your case
  • File the proper paperwork with the Arizona family court
  • Represent you at every court hearing on this matter

What rights do grandparents have?

There are many reasons why grandparents may be denied access to their grandchildren. This could be because:

  • The child’s parents have separated or divorced, and one parent denies access to the grandparents.
  • One parent has died or is missing, and the surviving parent denies access to the child.
  • The parent(s) are struggling with addiction and not want the grandparents to find out.
  • The parent(s) do not get along with the grandparents.

Under Arizona law, grandparents may petition the court for visitation if one of the following is true:

  • The child’s parents have been divorced for at least three months, and the grandparents are the parent of the non-custodial parent.
  • One of the child’s parents is deceased or has been missing for at least three months, and the grandparent is the parent of the child’s deceased or missing parent.
  • The child’s parents were never married in the first place, and the grandparents have been denied access to the child.
