Put a Dedicated Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyer on Your Side
Similar to other matters of
visitation, the court is careful to uphold the best interests of the child when a
grandparent is requesting visitation.
A grandparent may do so only in very specific circumstances, including:
- The death of a parent
divorce of the parents
- If the parents have filed for divorce or been legally separated for six months
The court will consider how much interaction occurred between the grandparents
and their grandchildren before the visitation petition has been submitted.
According to Pennsylvania state law, grandparents are eligible for two
specific kinds of visitation – partial physical custody and supervised
