Grandparent Visitation Rights

Seeking Grandparent Visitations?


A loving grandparent can be one of the most important and influential figures in a child’s life. Unfortunately, a grandparent’s time spent with grandchildren can be disrupted by divorce, separation or death of the child’s parents.

In Indiana, the Grandparent Visitation Act governs when a grandparent may seek visitation of a grandchild. In considering grandparent visitation issues, a court must balance the parents’ rights and the child’s best interests in a way that does not substantially impinge on the parents’ fundamental right to direct and control the raising of their child. A grandparent seeking court-ordered grandchild visitation time faces a substantial burden in proving that it is in the best interest of the child for the court to intervene and enter an order requiring grandparent visitation. At Halcomb Singler, LLP, our Carmel attorneys can help you attempt to overcome this burden, and advocate for your ability to spend valuable time with the grandchildren you love.
