Berks County Grandparents' Rights Attorneys

The Relationship Between Children and Grandparents is Important

The role of grandparents in child-rearing has always been extremely important. The child's relationship with his or her grandparent's is more important than ever in modern society. Who doesn't know grandparents who watch their grandchildren while their parents work; take them to school; and watch them after school. Overall children spend more time with their grandparents than ever before. Some grandparents are the primary care taker. There's a powerful bond between children and their grandparents. To remove a child from that relationship is emotionally devastating for both the child and the grandparents. And nothing is harder than seeing your grandchildren in the custody of an abusive, incompetent or uncaring parents.Our Grandparents' Rights Attorneys will make sure neither of those things happen.

Pennsylvania Custody and Grandparents' Visitation Act

Pennsylvania realized the importance of the relationship between children and their grandparents by passing the Pennsylvania Custody and Grandparents' Visitation Act. As the name implies, the act allows grandparents to petition the court for:

  • Partial Physical Custody - whereby the grandparents are free to plan activities without the parents involvement or prior approval; and
  • Partial Supervised Custody (Similar to Visitation) - whereby the parents decide and/or approve activities, when they'll happen.

Pennsylvania Custody and Grandparents' Visitation Act allows grandparents to petition the court for Partial Physical Custody or Partial Supervised Custody under the following circumstances...

  • Upon the death of a birth parent;
  • When parents are divorced or have been separated for six months or more and a divorce has been filed; and
  • When the child has, for a period of at least 12 consecutive months, resided with the grandparent or great-grandparent, excluding brief temporary absences of the child from the home, and is removed from the home by the parents, an action must be filed within six months after the removal of the child from the home.

The court's decision to award custody to grandparents is based upon determining what's best for the child (children). Some of the things they consider include the child's...

  • emotional, physical and emotional well-being;
  • past relationship with his or her grandparents;
  • preferences in cases where he or she is old enough to make the decision; and
  • social and intellectual growth.
