Grandparents often play an important role in the child rearing and development of a child, sometimes more so than the parents themselves. In Georgia, grandparents have the right to seek custody of or visitation for a grandchild, depending on the circumstances surrounding his or her care.
If you are a grandparent and you are seeking custody or visitation rights, Sailers & Associates can help you. Attorney Sailers has a strong command of the state laws surrounding custody, visitation and adoption. He will use his knowledge to help you achieve your goals, always keeping in mind the best interests of your grandchildren.
Assertively Representing Grandparents in Georgia Custody and Visitation Cases
When a parent isn't there for his or her child, someone must step in and think about the child's well-being. Unfortunately, not all parents are mentally capable, financially fit or physically available to take care of their children. This is where Sailers & Associates can help.
Based in Atlanta, our comprehensive family law team is committed to helping grandparents step in and take on an important role in their grandchildren's lives. Often, our clients come to us for help seeking custody, guardianship, adoption, and visitation in situations where:
- A parent has died
- A parent is incapable of caring for the child due to injury, illness or disability
- A parent is incapable of caring for the child because of drug addiction, substance abuse or domestic abuse
Life circumstances may prevent a parent from providing for the child, such as armed forces duty or incarceration.
When you consult with Sailers & Associates, we will work closely with you to learn about your circumstance and to help you understand your rights under the grandparents' right code in Georgia.
We want our clients to consider the levels of responsibility that go along with guardianship, custody, visitation, and adoption in respect to their grandchildren. We help them do so by explaining how those choices they make will affect their lives, as well as the lives of their grandchildren.
