Grandparents’ Rights Lawyer in Denver

Grandparents have rights to visit their grandchildren under Colorado law. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., you can work with a grandparents’ rights lawyer in Denver to protect and exercise your visitation rights.

When Can a Grandparent Request Visitation?

If the child’s parents are married and there is no pending court action involving the child, it is rare for a grandparent to receive visitation rights. Parents’ rights to decide who has access to their children generally trump grandparents’ interests.

However, if there is a divorce case or child custody case pending, you may be able to intervene and request visitation rights as a grandparent. If the child has been placed outside of their home by the court, you may petition the court to award visitation time. Finally, if you are a grandparent and your child has died, this may give you the legal right to ask a court for visitation with your grandchild.

All of these rights also apply to great-grandparents who desire visitation with their great-grandchildren.
