During a divorce proceeding, little concern is given for the grandparents even if you have been a large part of the lives of the children in question up until this point. Grandparents' rights, while important, are not a big part of the law and if you are interested in seeking visitation with your grandchildren you need to seek the help of a Covina divorce attorney from my firm today.
Because grandparents' rights are not guaranteed under California law, you may be facing an uphill battle. If both parents are in agreement that they do not want you to have visitation with their child, a judge would need a very good reason to go against those wishes. However, in some cases where both parents are unable to take care of the children in question, as the grandparent you may be able to assert guardianship over the children. Other times you may even be able to legally adopt your grandchildren.
Grandparents' rights are assessed on a case-by-case basis. There is no guarantee you will be able to secure visitation or guardianship with your grandchildren, however, retaining the services of an experienced family law attorney will help you make the best case possible.
