Recognizing grandparent rights is a rather new development, though grandparents, just as other meaningful relationships, such as step-parents or other caretakers, form deep bonds with the children in their lives.
However, life circumstances, such as the death of one or both parents, divorce, adoption, or estrangement can lead to these bonds being broken. In these cases, grandparents find themselves left without options.
At Joyce & Dubin, PLLC, we can work with you to reestablish a relationship with your grandchildren in the form of grandparenting time as provided by Arizona law, which states that the Court may award child visitation rights to grandparents if the child’s parents’ marriage has been dissolved for a period of at least three months, or if the child is born to unmarried parents (out of wed-lock).
