Experienced Lawyers Who Will Stick Up for Your Rights
Courts in Utah give considerable deference to the wishes of parents with regard to grandparent visitation. If both parents say that the grandparents should not see the grandchildren, then courts are not likely to order visitation.
However, there are times when courts may order visitation for grandparents. For example, if your son or daughter is no longer in the picture and the other parent had cutoff visits, courts may decide that it is in the child's best interests to see his or her grandparents.
Our lawyers will listen to the circumstances in your case and give you an honest evaluation of whether the court is likely to award visitation. If you have a good case, we can guide you through the legal steps to obtain visitation. Even if the court may rule in your favor, it's always best to resolve visitation issues through mediation.
Utah courts may grant visitation to stepparents after divorce, especially when the stepparent provides support for the child.
