Fall 2021 Family Law Newsletter: Key considerations in awarding grandparent visitation rights

The recently published Fall 2021 Family Law Newsletter describes recent court rulings awarding grandparent visitation rights over the objections of parents.

The rulings demonstrate that in the right circumstances courts will award visitation rights under state grandparent visitation laws.  Key considerations in the rulings include the bonds established between minor children and grandparents, and the fitness of parents to provide for the children.

The Fall 2021 newsletter, published by partner Gary Owen Todd, addresses other important Family Law issues, including how title affects property division in divorce, prenup agreements involving family pets, and lessons learned from the Larry King probate battle.

Mr. Todd, a Founding Partner at the firm, is recognized locally and nationally as a preeminent family law attorney concentrating on domestic relations and probate litigation.  He has successfully negotiated, mediated, and tried numerous family law issues at the trial court and appellate levels.
