Grandparents’ Rights & Laws in Massachusetts

Family relationships can be difficult to maneuver and can often be wrought with conflict and struggles, especially between generations. There may be times when parents find themselves in need of seeking legal protection of their rights as parents. They may wish to prevent grandparents from visitation or find themselves facing court action so that family can have access to their kids. If you find your rights as a parent are in need of protection or need to defend a position of denying a grandparent access to a child, Shapiro Law Group, PC, can provide the legal support you need.

Visitation Rights

There are times when a grandparent’s relationship with a child can be detrimental or infringe on the time a single parent may have for his or her own visitation time. There are also situations where a grandparent unfairly questions the ability of a parent to effectively parent, encroaching on the rights of that parent. A grandparent may have had or continues to have guardianship of a child and may be making it difficult for a parent to regain custody or parental rights. Oftentimes, these conflicts can be dealt with within the family or negotiated between parties. Then there are times when the conflicts require legal action. When faced with legal action by a relative, particularly a grandparent to your children, having legal support is a must. An outside party who can objectively listen and evaluate the situation can help you remain clear-headed and able to defend your position. We can help ensure your rights as a parent are protected.
