Protecting The Rights Of Grandparents In A Host Of Different Family Law Matters

In Connecticut, grandparents typically cannot obtain visitation rights unless they can demonstrate a parent-like relationship with the child for an extended period of time and the child would suffer from denying the grandparent visitation.

However, if your grandchild is being abused or neglected by a parent, or if the parents are under investigation for child abuse, you pursue other legal options. Grandparents can petition the court for child custody and guardianship. We assist grandparents in matters involving the Department of Children and Families (DCF). A grandparent can often gain temporary custody of their grandchildren during an investigation and can petition to maintain custody if the circumstances warrant.

The law firm of Zaslow & Sandler, LLC, assists grandparents throughout Connecticut with visitation, guardianships and custody issues involving their grandchildren. With more than 35 years of combined legal experience, we provide grandmothers and grandfathers with the information they need to make informed legal decisions. We can explain the law and legal process to you, as well as answer questions regarding Connecticut grandparent rights.
