Grandparents are often a major force in a child's life. In many cases, they may help raise the child or otherwise improve the quality of their life. However, there are times when the child's parents may not want the grandparents to visit, or when visitation is complicated. Maybe the parents are separated. Or, perhaps the parents are estranged from the grandparents and so don't wish for them to visit their child.
When you want to preserve your relationship with your grandchild, you need a lawyer to help defend your visitation rights. Most states-including Arkansas-have laws to help protect a grandparent's rights to spend time with their grandchild. Depending on the situation, these may be restrictive-only available upon divorce, death, or similar circumstances-or permissive. You can get visitation rights if it's in the best interest of the child.
