Non-Parent Custody And Visitation Rights

Many children have special, important relationships with adults who are not their parents. These relationships can be affected by divorce, death, illness, incarceration, substance abuse problems or other issues with a parent.

If you are a grandparent, stepparent, aunt, uncle or other relative of a child, and you are interested in exploring your custody or visitation rights, you should talk to an experienced family law attorney.
