Understanding Grandparents' Visitation in California

In California, grandparents have legal rights when it comes to seeking visitation with their grandchildren. The law recognizes that it may be in the best interests of the child to maintain a relationship with their grandparents, even if the parents are separated, divorced, or no longer living together. However, it's important to note that grandparents do not have an automatic right to visitation and must meet certain criteria to seek court-ordered visitation. At Moore, Schulman & Moore, APC, our knowledgeable grandparents' rights attorneys in San Diego can provide you with the information and guidance you need.

Requirements for Seeking Grandparents' Visitation

To petition the court for visitation rights as a grandparent, you must demonstrate the following:

  • Child's Well-being: The court will prioritize the child's health, safety, and overall well-being when making a visitation determination.

  • Pre-existing Relationship: You must have had a pre-existing relationship with the grandchild, meaning you have established a bond with the child through regular and ongoing contact.

  • Parental Objection or Inaccessibility: There must be a situation where the child's parents are either divorced, separated, or living separately and have objected to grandparent visitation, or one parent is deceased, missing, or in a state of unavailability.

  • Best Interests of the Child: The court will consider the best interests of the child when determining whether granting grandparents' visitation rights would be beneficial for the child's well-being.

  • Grandparents' Motivation: The court will evaluate the grandparents' motives for seeking visitation and their ability to promote a healthy relationship between the child and their parents.
