Grandparents' Rights in Nashville, Tennessee

Top-Rated Divorce Attorney in Nashville

The bond between a grandparent and a grandchild is a precious one. When a child's parents are in the midst of a divorce, grandparents can often be forgotten. Depending on the outcome of the child custody case, a grandparent may be almost pushed out of the picture. If you have a thriving relationship with your grandkids, you don't have to endure the devastation of losing them.

Instead, you need to speak with our Nashville divorce lawyers about establishing grandparent's rights. At Martin Sir & Associates, we work in this unique area of law in order to help our clients obtain the special bond with their grandchildren that they desire.

About the Tennessee Code

If you are a grandparent, you can request visitation with your grandkids according to Title 36, Section 36-6-301. Grandparents have the right to request visitation and the judge has authority to grant this request based on whether or not the visitation is in the child's best interests.

In order to make a decision on grandparent visitation rights, the court considers:

  • The child's pre-existing relationship with a grandparent
  • The bond between the grandparent and the grandchild
  • The lifestyle, health, and ethics of the grandparent
  • The child's desire to continue a relationship with their grandparent
  • How the relationship will affect the welfare of the child

Grandparents' Rights and Adoption

When a child is adopted by a stepparent or another relative, the grandparent's rights may be terminated. This is a Tennessee statute and is enforced by most courts.

Not all grandparents' rights cases have to be enforced through the court. If parents are willing to let a grandparent exercise visitation, the court does not have to be involved in this situation.

If you are hoping to maintain a relationship with your loved ones after your son or daughter has finalized a divorce, don't hesitate to call Martin Sir & Associates for assistance.
