Grandparent Visitation/Third Party Custody

Often parents will find themselves in the difficult situations where they know their own children cannot or will not be able to care for their grandchildren properly, or face a situation where one or both parents prevent grandparents from having a relationship with their grandchildren. Minnesota law provides grandparents with the ability to request access to their grandchildren. We have assisted multiple families in establishing a relationship with their grandchildren, and in some cases seeking custody of their grandchildren.

In other cases, an individual may find themselves as the best caretaker available for a minor child. Third party custody is granted to someone other than the biological or legal parents.  We are ready to assist you in all aspects of issues relating to foster parent custody, third party non-relative custody, relative and grandparent custody, access rights.
