Do grandparents have rights in California?

The California family law courts always favor the best interests of a child. In cases where there have been custody issues between parents or if the child’s parents are emotionally or physically unavailable, a grandparent may petition the court for visitation rights to his or her grandchild or grandchildren.

You Have Visitation Rights

If you have a strong bond with your grandchild or children and wish to seek visitation or custody rights, you may have a case. If you have been denied visitation in the past or if the child’s family situation has changed, it may be in your grandchild’s best interest to seek a stable home environment that you may be able to provide.

A grandparent can request visitation if:

  • The parents are living in separate houses, cities, or states
  • When one or both parents are deceased
  • The parent’s whereabouts are unknown
  • The child does not live with his or her parents
  • A stepparent has adopted the grandchild in question
