Pennsylvania law allows grandparents several visitation rights. In some cases, the grandparent may even be entitled to child custody in cases where the biological parents are unable to take care of the child or if it has been deemed to be in the best interest of the child by a Philadelphia family court judge.
Many children are born out of the wedlock in Philadelphia. In such cases, enforcing grandparent's rights of the non-custodial parent's parents can be a tall task. In numerous cases, the custodial parent may have to form personal relations with the grandparents or have a bitter relation with the non-custodial parent. The attorneys at Testa & Pagnanelli LLC have worked with many grandparents to assist in obtaining their visitation rights in the court of law for decades.
Grandparents' rights to visitation may be limited compared to the living and able biological parent. In many cases, the grandparents find it beneficial to establish their visitation rights as well as custodial rights with the help of professional attorneys. Much like parenting time, the grandparents' rights to visitation with their grandchildren may be scheduled according to a court order.
The attorneys at Testa & Pagnanelli LLC have aided and advocated for grandparents' rights in Philadelphia family courts. Often, expert testimony may be brought forth to draw a clear picture of the existing family to establish a holistic case for grandparents' rights. Sometimes, the custodial parent may oppose the grandparents' rights to visitation. Having experienced lawyers as their arsenal may help a lot of grandparents maintain a healthy relationship with their grandchildren.
