Grandparents Visitation Rights and Third Party Custody

| Aug 20, 2020 | Child Custody, Grandparent Visitation Rights

If you are seeking answers regarding grandparents visitation rights or your rights as a third party, our attorneys at Ruppert & Schaefer, P.C., can help. We stay up to date on the latest changes in Indiana family laws and will be able to guide you through any issues you are having.


As experienced family law attorneys, we have helped numerous grandparents achieve their visitation goals. There are several occasions that arise, which allow grandparents to seek visitation rights, including:

  • A child’s parent is deceased
  • The marriage of the child’s parents has been dissolved
  • The child is born out of wedlock and the child’s father has established paternity
  • Visitation is in the best interests of the child according to the court

Grandparents may not petition for visitation rights when the marriage of the parents is still intact. Our family law attorneys will explain all of your options to you and guide you
down the right path. Simply because you do not qualify for visitation rights does not mean that you do not qualify for third
party custody rights.
