Grandparent’s Rights


Protecting Grandparent-Grandchild Relationships in Central Texas

The relationship between a grandparent and a grandchild is a special one. When parents divorce, or other circumstances occur that cause family relationships to change, grandparents may wish to take steps to maintain access to their grandchildren.

My name is Bobby Dale Barina. If you are a grandparent who wishes to protect your relationship with your grandchild, and wish to talk to an attorney about your specific legal options, I invite you to contact my law office. I offer a free consultation where I can explain what steps you need to take to ensure access to your grandchild through visitation or custody.

Grandparents’ Rights: Exploring Your Legal Options

I help grandparents seek visitation rights when they may not have access to their grandchildren. This may occur due to strained relationships with the parent, divorce or separation, or for other reasons.

In certain cases, grandparents may be able to seek child custody rights. This may occur when both parents are unable to provide care for the children due to chemical dependency or another reason. Child Protective Services (CPS) may get involved when the health or safety of a child is threatened. At this time, grandparents may become the primary caregivers of their grandchildren.

My goal is to help grandparents get the support they need to foster relationships with their grandchildren. During the legal process, I stay focused on doing what is best for the child or children involved.

I have significant experience working with military families involved in family law legal matters. When parents are in the military and distance separates families, grandparents may wish to establish visitation rights.
