Grandparent’s Child Custody Rights in San Diego | Jabro Law Group
GRANDPARENTS DO HAVE CUSTODIAL RIGHTS OF THEIR GRANDCHILDREN
In California, a Court WILL MOST LIKELY grant reasonable visitation to a GRANDPARENT OR CLOSE FAMILY MEMBER of a minor child of a party to the proceeding if the court determines that visitation by the grandparent is in the best interest of the child. Although California Legislature finds and declares that a parent’s fundamental right to provide for the care, custody, companionship, and management of his or her children, while compelling, is not absolute. California law is quite clear that children have a fundamental right to maintain healthy, stable relationships with a person who has served in a significant, judicially approved parental role.
Asserting Grandparent’s Visitation Rights in California
California Courts have considerable discretion in these cases. When making custody and visitation rights, Court will consider among many factors:
- The important role that a grandparent has in the child’s life
- The impact of that relationship to the children’s life
- The motives of the parent denying visitation and custody
- The disruption caused in the child’s life either by prohibiting visitation or granting visitation
