Grandparent Visitation Lawyer
Grandparent Visitation Petitions are typically permitted in Massachusetts where the parents of the minor child are divorced, separated or deceased. Grandparent visitation is typically not permitted in cases with an intact primary family. The standard for prevailing in a Petition for Grandparent Visitation is high. Courts are usually reluctant to substitute their judgment for that of an otherwise fit parent who has determined that they do not want their child to visit with a grandparent. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney that will explain the standard to you and whether your Petition has a likelihood of success.
