Grandparents and Other Relatives

Grandparents and other important adults can provide a special link to the past and a positive influence for the future. Sometimes, a parent needs or wants a grandparent to take on a bigger role in a child’s life. Sometimes, parents and grandparents are happy simply to preserve the grandparent relationship. The law recognizes both the constitutional rights of parents and the need to protect a child’s other important relationships.
