Divorce is a complicated process that impacts almost every member of a family. Beyond immediate family members, it can also affect grandparents and other extended family members close to the kids. Parents may disagree when it comes to their children seeing their grandparents after a divorce.
Grandparents in Arizona who have not been able to visit with their grandchildren should explore their right to seek visitation. Specific circumstances are allowing different family members to seek the court’s intervention. Litigation and court battles can harm children. Grandparents should weigh the potential benefits over the possible negative consequences. It largely depends on how old the children are and their relationship with the grandparents. Some families can decide outside of the court and negotiate with the parents and grandparents.
Of course, it all comes down to the best interests of the children. Depending on the complexity of the child custody case and visitation matters, many people benefit from hiring an experienced attorney who can guide them and assist them through every step.
