Previous Guardians and Visitation Rights


I was previously a guardian of a child, but the parent has regained custody of the child. Do I have any rights to visitation with the child?

Yes. The Court may grant visitation rights to former legal guardians of children. The visitation is normally reasonable and the Court must make a determination that the visitation is in the child's best interest. In addition, there must not be a pending dependency proceeding nor a prior Court order granting or denying visitation between child and former legal guardian. Were you previously a legal guardian of a child's and want to ensure that you maintain a relationship with that child. Contact Covina visitation attorney, Paul Eads today.
