At the Arami Law Office, we’ve witnessed the pain of grandparents who’ve been wrongly denied access to their grandchildren. After a divorce or the death of a spouse, the custodial parent may put obstacles between the grandparents and the children, either out of bitterness or a good-faith belief that the grandparents stir emotions that are damaging to the children. Fortunately, the state of Illinois has recognized the importance of the relationship between children and their grandparents and has enacted laws supporting grandparent visitation rights. The Arami Law Office assists grandparents who want to maintain a loving relationship with their grandchildren. However, we recognize that parents often have sound reasons for limiting access to their children, so we also represent them in defending their prerogatives.
A parent’s denial of grandparent visitation must be unreasonable for a court to consider allowing access. These circumstances may also merit court intervention:
The court looks at several aspects when determining whether to enforce grandparent visitation rights over the objection of a custodial parent. Common considerations include:
In addition, the court takes into consideration the reasonableness of the parent. Since this is highly subjective, you need an experienced attorney who can present your case in a professional and compelling manner to prevail in court.
