Atlanta lawyer for grandparents rights

The State of Georgia provided grandparents the right to seek custody or a visitation schedule with their grandchildren. The state recognizes that grandparents play an important role in the lives of their grandchildren, sometimes acting as their primary caregiver.

When parents are acting in a manner that negatively impacts their children and causes serious problems, sometimes grandparents must step up and protect their grandchildren from harm. Unfortunately, parents can suffer mental, physical or financial problems that require the intervention of grandparents.

If you are a grandparent and are seeking custody or visitation rights, Howard A. Gold, who has represented many grandparents over the years, can help you.

A grandparent who has a deceased son or daughter will benefit from Georgia's new Grandparent Visitation Statute that was enacted May 1, 2012. However, if, for good reasons, the parents or parent of a child believe that the grandparents should not have visitation with their grandchildren, they have a right to defend against any lawsuit brought by the grandparents. Howard Gold ha successfully represented parents in this type of litigation.
