Grandparents and grandchildren often share special connections that deepen their relationships and enrich their lives. While parents generally serve as guardians, disciplinarians, and custodians of their children, grandparents are often able to step into supportive roles in the lives of the young people they love. Throughout Texas, kids benefit from spending time with their grandparents and having them in their lives.
However, the life of a child's parent does not always support the important relationship between a child and their grandparent. Divorce, separation, and other challenges between a child's parents can cause a family to split and create alienation between once close individuals. When these tragic occurrences happen, grandparents and grandkids can lose out on having each other for comfort.
Although there is no guarantee that a court will award a grandparent visitation or custody of their grandchild, the Texas courts do permit grandparents to petition for these important roles in their grandchildren's lives. When custody or visitation with a grandparent serves the best interests of the child or provides for the child's needs then permission may be granted to allow a grandparent dedicated time with the child.
The enforcement of a grandparent's visitation rights or custody rights to a grandchild can be an important part in providing that child with stability.
