If you fear that you will not be allowed to see your grandchildren because their parents are divorcing or perhaps one parent is remarrying or moving away, call and speak with a Corning grandparent visitation attorney. Your lawyer will advise you of your rights and the possibility of establishing scheduled visitation with your grandchildren.
Though legal circumstances vary by state, in general grandparents face a difficult battle to obtain visitation with their grandchildren when the parents object to the visits. The burden is on grandparents to prove their relationship with the children is established and beneficial, and that the grandparents won't harm the children while they are in their care. However, the law is changing every day and increasingly recognizing the importance, tradition, and value of having grandparents in children's lives.
An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.
An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.
For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
