Grandparents’ Custody Rights in Texas

Austin Visitation Rights Attorneys

Sometimes situations arise when both parents are unable or unwilling to care for their children. In these cases, the grandparents or others may end up stepping in to care for and raise the children themselves. There are special considerations a grandparent raising a grandchild must be aware of, as well as certain court orders and other legal steps you should take to protect the interests of you and the children. The law is complex in these matters, but our family law team of attorneys has the experience and knowledge necessary to advocate for you.

How a Grandparent Can File for Visitation

Grandparents can either file for conservatorship or for visitation privileges. Either way, the decision of the court hinges on whether or not the grandparents can prove it is in the child's best interest, among other factors set out in the Texas Family Code.
