It is widely believed that any relatives who are positively involved in a child's life can help contribute to the child's well-being and happiness. Unfortunately, parents may fight the grandparents, attempting to keep them from the child. This often occurs when parents have separated or are divorcing. However, New York state law recognizes the importance of family involvement in a child's life and allows for grandparents and other relatives to have access to a child, if:

  • The relationship can be shown to be beneficial and safe for the child.
  • There was a substantial pre-existing relationship.

At Campagna Johnson, P.C., in Suffolk County, we understand the emotions that are involved in grandparents' rights cases. Throughout our more than two decades of handling family law and divorce cases, we have represented numerous grandparents and relatives who wish to maintain contact with and involvement in a child's life. These relationships are important and we work tirelessly to see that they are maintained whenever possible.
