Placer County Grandparents Visitation Rights

In Placer County family law, an issue that is gaining more attention is the concept of grandparent visitation rights.  Under traditional California law, the Placer County Child Custody court focuses on allocating custody and visitation between the biological or adoptive parents.  Grandparents do not have the right to demand and receive automatic visitation with the child in California.  Typically, the Placer County child custody court will order grandparent visitation in severe cases where the parents are imprisoned, abusive, or missing.

Grandparents who desire visitation with their grandchildren should still consider pursuing in court.  The requesting grandparent must launch an independent visitation action and establish via clear and convincing evidence that denial of their visitation is detrimental to the child.  If the court is convinced that visitation is in the child’s best interest, they can order it.

If you are a grandparent of a child involved in a Placer County child custody and visitation case and you are considering initiating a visitation action, you should strongly consider hiring a Placer County family law attorney.  Please consider giving us a call today as we offer a free half-hour attorney consultation.
