Do grandparents have child visitation rights?

Grandparents’ rights to their grandchildren are quite limited under the law. As a general rule, parents have the right to decide who their children will associate with, including the right to deny other relatives any access to the kids. However, grandparents can petition for visitation rights if they have strong evidence that it would be in the best interests of the child.

North Carolina laws concerning child custody can be complex and are sometimes poorly defined. If you are trying to win custody or visitation rights to your grandchildren, you will need a knowledgeable and skilled Raleigh grandparents’ rights attorney.
