Grandparents’ Rights in New Jersey

Parents can fail to appreciate the unique gifts that grandparents offer their children. This is not uncommon in cases in which relationships are strained or there are custody issues as the result of a divorce or separation. Problems with the parents can jeopardize the rights of grandparents and their ability to play an active role in their grandchildren’s lives. Depending on the circumstances in your particular case, the law may be on your side.

Under Section 9:2-7.1 of the New Jersey Statutes, grandparents may file an application for visitation rights with the court if they are currently being denied by the parents. At Lomurro Law, our Monmouth County grandparents rights attorneys provide the professional legal representation you need in these types of hearings. Factors a judge will consider in awarding visitation to grandparents include:

● The current and previous relationship between you and the child;

● The current situation involving the parents and your relationship with them;

● The amount of time which has elapsed since your last visitation or contact with the child;

● Whether awarding grandparent visitation is in the child’s best interests.
