Trusted Legal Counsel for Houston Area Grandparents
Some states grant very few formal rights to grandparents — even when those grandparents essentially or entirely raise children for a period of months or years. Texas law does grant very specific grandparents’ rights under a range of circumstances. If you are currently engaged in a family dispute in Houston and concerned about the well-being of your grandchildren, please contact us for informed, caring counsel.
Our Houston area law firm, practicing primarily in Harris County, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties, has built a strong reputation for handling complex family law cases with aggressiveness, skill and integrity. We have the knowledge and sensitivity to help you deal effectively with a situation such as:
- Your position as a grandparent who has cared for children over a period of time while their natural parent or parents were unable or unwilling to do so — only to have a parent reappear and want to take over
- Your desire either to obtain custody of your grandchildren — most often due to serious concerns about the parents’ capacity to care for them due to drug problems, mental illness or criminal behavior
- Your willingness to have children return to a biological parent, provided you have legal rights to visitation and continued involvement in your grandchildren’s lives
- Your need to formalize legal custody or establish guardianship in order to secure insurance, benefit from some level of child support, or otherwise take care of your grandchildren’s basic needs
