Grandparents' Rights In Michigan

Grandparents Have Questions. We Have Answers.

In an ideal world, grandparents will always be able to visit their grandchildren, and those grandchildren will always be well-cared for and protected by their parents. Unfortunately, the real world is not a perfect place. Many grandparents in Michigan find themselves unable to see their grandchildren, especially following the death of their adult child or their child's divorce, or if their grandchild is born out of wedlock, or no longer resides in the same home as their parents. These grandparents have questions such as:

  • Can I see my grandchildren if their parents have cut me out of their lives, or if I have been denied access or grandparenting time with them?
  • What should I do if I suspect my grandchild has been neglected or abused?
  • What can I do if I am concerned about my grandchild's general well-being?
  • How do I get the rights I need to make decisions about their school, medical needs and other aspects of their upbringing if I am already taking care of my grandchild?

Whether you are a grandparent in Michigan or you live out of state and have grandchildren in Michigan, it's time you get the answers you deserve.
