Helping Grandparents Provide The Best Care For Their Grandchildren
Grandparents often play an important role in the child rearing and development of a child, sometimes more so than the parents themselves. In Georgia, grandparents have the right to seek custody of or visitation for a grandchild, depending on the circumstances surrounding his or her care.
If you are a grandparent and you are seeking custody or visitation rights, The Manely Firm, P.C., can help you. Our team of family lawyers have a strong command of the state laws surrounding custody, visitation and adoption. We will use our knowledge to help you achieve your goals, always keeping in mind the best interests of your grandchildren.
Assertively Representing Grandparents In Georgia Custody And Visitation Cases
When a parent isn’t there for his or her child, someone must step in and think about the child’s well-being. Unfortunately, not all parents are mentally capable, financially fit or physically available to take care of their children. This is where our firm can help.
With offices throughout the Atlanta Metro and in Savannah, our comprehensive family law firm is committed to helping grandparents step in and take on an important role in their grandchildren’s lives.
Often, our clients come to us for help seeking custody, guardianship, adoption and visitation in situations where:
- A parent has died
- A parent is incapable of caring for the child due to injury, illness or disability
- A parent is incapable of caring for the child because of drug addiction, substance abuse or domestic abuse
- Life circumstances prevent a parent from providing for the child, such as armed forces duty or incarceration
- Divorce or separation
- A grandparent is already acting as the primary caregiver to the grandchild
When you consult with The Manely Firm, P.C., we will work closely with you to learn about your circumstance and to help you understand your rights under the grandparents’ right code in Georgia.
We want our clients to consider the levels of responsibility that go along with guardianship, custody, visitation and adoption in respect to their grandchildren. We help them do so by explaining how those choices they make will affect their lives, as well as the lives of their grandchildren.
Modifying Grandchild Custody And Visitation Agreements
In addition to helping you establish custody of your grandchild, the Manely Firm, P.C., can assist you with making modifications to your agreements.
