Legal counsel for grandparents who want visitation rights

In Pennsylvania, as well as across the entire United States, a parent may not be able to take care of the child for one reason or another. This could be because of illness, divorce or substance abuse. Under those circumstances, in the best interest of the child, a grandparent may have to raise the child. The visitation rights of grandparents must be validated by the court. If it has to be proved in court, that grandparent, as a family member, is the best person to take care of the child. However, the grandparent will need a solid argument to prove the case in a Pennsylvania court, and for that, the elderly family member may find the support of an experienced attorney very helpful.

A grandparent may face challenges while raising grandchildren. Although the Pennsylvania government has established the National Family Caregiver Support Program to help family members support the grandchildren, it is not always possible for an elderly person to understand the program and to make the best of it.

Subsequently, the grandparent will need the support of a attorney who not only empathizes with the grandparent but also provides legal guidance about support and other matters. The attorneys at Testa & Pagnanelli LLC, have decades of experience at handling family law matters and can help grandparents exercise their deserved grandparents' rights.

Pennsylvania also has programs, such as Second Time Around Parents, which offer services to grandparents who are raising children. It is possible that grandparents are not aware of those programs. Hence, it may be a good idea to obtain sound legal counsel from a seasoned attorney who can offer all of the necessary information to the grandparents.
