In Texas, the rights of a grandparent to maintain a relationship with a grandchild — even over the objection of the child's parents — have a long and complex history. Although a landmark decision defined some of these rights in 2000 ( Troxel v. Granville ), the practical application of grandparents' rights in Texas family courts is still evolving.
At Pelley Law Office, L.L.P., our family law attorneys have over 80 years of combined experience serving clients throughout North Texas. We handle all matters of family law, from divorce to adoption. In every case involving a child, we have one overriding goal — to do what we can to ensure that the decisions made and the actions taken are in the child's ultimate best interest.
If you are a grandparent seeking visitation, you should know that Texas law does provide you with specific rights. You should also know that the nature and extent of those rights depends almost entirely on the specifics of the situation.
