GrandParent’s Rights Attorney – Angelton, TX

South Texas Family Law Firm | Custody and Visitation | Support

If you are a grandparent in a situation in which the parents are divorced, one of the parents has died or the parents are not providing for the children, you may be uncertain what your rights are with respect to custody, visitation and support. The courts and the legislature have recognized that grandparents and grandchildren have a special bond, and that the termination of that relationship may not be in the best interests of the child. In Texas, procedures have been established to allow grandparents to seek visitation or, in situations where grandchildren are in risk of danger or impairment, custody and support. If you want to protect your relationship with your grandchildren, you want an experienced family law attorney to guide you through the legal process.

At the Law Office of Mark B. Jones, we have protected the rights of individuals in south Texas since 1993. We have considerable experience working with grandparents who seek custody or visitation with their grandchildren, and have won those rights for clients in the past. We have extensive courtroom experience as well as the skill and knowledge to aggressively protect your rights at trial. Attorney Jones is also a certified family law mediator and can help you pursue your objectives through more cooperative means. We can also help you negotiate an outcome that is in your grandchildren’s best interests.

Our Protection of Grandparents’ Rights

We work with grandparents at any stage of a divorce proceeding, whether a divorce has just been filed and you seek temporary visitation or custody rights, or your child’s divorce is final and you want the court to modify a final judgment. We will help you protect your rights with respect to:

  • Child custody or visitation — We will work with you to identify a visitation schedule that is in the best interests of your grandchildren and that provides you with a meaningful opportunity to participate in their lives. If your grandchildren are at risk, whether because of violence or domestic abuse in the home, or other dangerous activity (such as drug or alcohol abuse), we will help you seek temporary or permanent custody.
  • Child support — If you seek custody of your grandchildren, we will also help you pursue an order for child support so that you can meet your grandchildren’s financial needs.
