Helping Grandparents Be With Their Grandchildren

Last updated on February 15, 2024

It is not often that divorce affects the grandparents in a family, but sometimes it does. In a divorce, family turmoil or other issue that keeps a grandparent from their grandchildren, far too many grandparents are unaware of their legal rights to be with their grandchildren.

At Nelson, Krueger & Millenbach, LLC, our Wisconsin attorneys help keep families together through swift and effective legal action. We know the rights that grandparents have and how to defend them. While we stand up for our clients, we also provide them with compassionate, judgment-free representation throughout their cases.

How We Can Help You

There are many circumstances in which we can help a grandparent be with their grandchildren. Just a few different types of grandparents’ rights cases involve situations such as:

  • A grandparent filing for visitation with their grandchildren. Earning this kind of legally-enforced visitation is possible if a court deems the visitation as in the “best interests” of the children and the statutory requirements are met.
  • A grandparent whose child has passed on seeking to maintain a relationship with their grandchildren.
  • A grandparent seeking full custody of their grandchildren. These situations can occur after the passing of a parent, the parents’ conviction for a crime, or the parent or parents are unfit.

It should be noted that there are situations where a grandparent may not be entitled to visitation of their grandchild.  If this is the case, we have the expertise to advise you one way or the other.

We also offer mediation services to seek an alternative method of resolving these cases. Mediation can offer an opportunity for both sides to come to a simple and fair resolution without court interference.
