Sometimes, there is a special relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren. Sometimes the relationship between a grandparent and his or her son or daughter — the parent of the grandchild — is not quite as smooth. Very often, that results in the grandparent and grandchild being deprived of contact with each other.
Brooklyn Grandparents' Rights
Under New York law, if you are unable to see your grandchildren in certain circumstances, (i.e., where one parent is deceased, or the parents are divorced or "equity sees fit to intervene") you have the right to bring a proceeding for grandparent visitation.
We have over 30 years of experience in bringing together grandparents and their grandchildren.

Do You Need Assistance With Defending Against Grandparent Visitation?
Sometimes, unfortunately your own parent may be an influence that you do not want in your children's lives. If your parents or in-laws have brought you to court to obtain grandparents' rights, we can advise you as to whether you have a valid defense against grandparents' visitation and if so help you to assert your right to raise your children without the influence of your parents.
