child custody and visitation Archives

Grandparents have visitation rights in California

A minor child's grandparents can easily become the forgotten party in a divorce, especially if the divorce entails animosity between the divorcing spouses. Grandparents often form close emotional bonds with their grandchildren, and a court's award of child custody to the spouse that is not the offspring of the grandparents can put deep strains on these relationships. The California legislature has acknowledged this fact by giving divorce courts the power to grant reasonable visitation rights to grandparents of minor children.

Understanding California law on supervised visitation

Many parents in Sacramento who have gone through a divorce have learned that the emotional turmoil doesn't always end when the judge signs the decree dissolving the marriage. For couples with children, the emotional aftermath of a divorce can be painful and disruptive, especially if one parent believes that the children are not safe in the unsupervised custody of the other parent. To resolve problems with child custody and visitation, courts often order supervised visitation.
