Laws Regarding Visitation

Did you know that as a grandparent, you can ask for visitation rights? Depending on what state you reside in and your relationship with the child, it is possible to petition the court to demand visitation.

Although all states have laws regarding grandparent visitation, some make it harder than others to qualify. These laws can also extend to other influential people in a child's life, such as foster relatives and step relatives.

Currently, there are twenty states that have restrictive visitation laws, meaning that only the grandparents are allowed to get visitation rights. In other states, however, there are more relaxed laws that don't even require a parent to authorize the right to visit with a grandchild.

To learn more about visitation rights in the state of North Carolina, we encourage you to contact Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC and set up a consultation. By speaking with one of our Raleigh family lawyers, you will have a better understanding of visitation and your rights.

Extra Step and Personal Attention...
I have always had extremely pleasing interactions with every staff member at Hopper Law Firm PLLC. They are ready to help, friendly and cooperative even in the worst of situations. Unfortunately, I have had several instances of traffic violations and they always turn an extremely bad situation into a good one. They take the extra step and are personal and make sure I am satisfied with whatever decision they choose to take and make sure I fully understand what they are going to do before just doing it.
