Under Michigan law, grandparents can seek visitation with their grandchildren if their child has died or divorced. If the grandchild was born out of wedlock, grandparents have no legal recourse unless their child has died.
It is tough for grandparents to get visitation rights because they must show by a preponderance of evidence that not seeing the grandparents will harm the children. To prove that the grandchildren will suffer emotional or psychological damage, you need an experienced family law attorney and often an expert.
Our lawyers understand child development and family dynamics. We also work with psychologists and other professionals during visitation and custody cases. We know how to present your strongest argument for gaining visitation rights with your grandchildren.
