At Brasier Law, LLC, we are committed to helping grandparents seeking their legal rights and time with their grandchildren. Often these loving grandparents have already played a significant role in the children’s lives, and we advocate on their behalf to see those relationships protected and nurtured.
Oregon Child Custody and Visitation Attorney
Commonly, grandparents’ rights disputes arise after the grandparents have cared for the children as legal guardians for a significant amount of time on behalf of the parents. After having asked the grandparents to look after the children, a change of heart inspires the parents to want the children back.
In other scenarios, a grandparent simply seeks the opportunity to know the children. The parents may have alienated the children from the grandparents, or it may be a situation where the opportunity to build the relationship has not been available. We will go to great lengths to prove the advantages to the child of this relationship.
Portland Grandparents’ Rights Attorney
Any of these scenarios can become complicated by accusations of abuse and the involvement of the Department of Human Services. Often grandparents are an option for the care of the child if a parent has been accused of abuse. We are equipped to handle these situations and provide a case on behalf of our client showing the advantages of grandparent involvement.
In the state of Oregon, the situation holds the additional complexities of laws that require certain criteria to be proven before rights will be granted. It is important that you have skilled representation at your side that fully understands and is prepared to advocate on your behalf.
