Grandparents’ Rights Attorney in Westlake Village

Let Our Westlake Village Family Lawyer Protect Your Rights

As a grandparent, you love your grandchildren very much, you want the chance to see them grow up and be a major part of their lives. However, if a divorce occurs between your child and their spouse, it could mean there is a chance that you will lose your relationship with your grandchildren.

My team at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Graff, can help grandparents obtain visitation rights in order to see their grandchildren on a regular, consistent basis. With more than 35 years of legal experience as a Westlake Village family lawyer, I have a complete understanding of California laws and court proceedings in order to obtain the results you desire.

Visitation Rights for Grandparents

Grandparents are considered as a third party, which makes their rights limited compared to the parents of the grandchildren. Fortunately, California does recognize that the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren as something important. Under state law, a grandparent can ask the court for reasonable visitation with a grandchild.

In order to give a grandparent reasonable visitation with a grandchild, the court has to do the following:

  • Determine that there was a pre-existing relationship between grandparent and grandchild that has “engendered a bond”
  • Balance the best interest of the child in having visitation with a grandparent with the rights of the parents to make decisions about their child

Helping Grandparents Reestablish Relationships with Their Grandchildren

With the help of a Westlake divorce & family you can file a petition in court and navigate through any legal complexities you may encounter. I have successfully represented thousands of families and we are confident in representing yours.

  • An Amazing Lawyer!

    “I would recommend Jeffrey to anyone that is going though a divorce or child custody. He did his job and helped me get through one of the toughest parts in my life. He is amazing and I can't thank him enough for helping me with this situation. I called around to a few different attorneys and he was the one that just made me feel good and he was super feasible for my situation.”

  • I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades.

    “I knew Jeffrey personally as a proud family man and a pillar of the community with an stellar reputation as a family/divorce attorney. When my daughter was going through her divorce and had several bad experiences with two attorneys, in the Westlake Village area, I recommended Jeffery to her. After meeting with us to discuss the situation and issues, Jeffery and his staff went to work, we went to court, Jeffery not only got the results my daughter had hoped for, but also managed to have the opposing party cover his fees, he is beyond knowledgeable, professional and fair, he's brilliant at what he does and worth every penny. I have since recommended Jeffrey to all my friends and acquaintances who need legal help and will continue to do so. I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades and thanks for his help and exceptional negotiating skill in settling the case, thank you, again.”

  • I have faith in Jeffery Graff.

    “I am a battered woman. Jeffrey saw this when I walked in a year ago to hire him to get a divorce. I was not ready. I thought I could save my 27yr marriage. He knew I would be back when I was ready. He never pushed me to follow through, he waited for me to make to be ready for the long haul. I finally did it! I got tired of being abused in so many ways. Jeffery is a very patient man. I know he will take care of me!!!!! So far so good. I know he is going to keep me in my house for now or ever. He was honest and said we may have to sell but I know the job will get done in my best interest!”

  • BEST ATTORNEY EVER

    “Mr. Graff was FANTASTIC!!! At the first meeting he was very knowledgeable as to my case details and clearly described the necessary procedures that I should expect. He was available anytime I had a question and always responded right away. When the court date arrived, he was absolutely the most professional in his presentation to the judge (compared to the other attorney who mumbled her way through) and I won my case. You can not go wrong with Jeffrey!!”
