If the parents violate the procedure for communication established by the guardianship authority, or the guardianship and trusteeship authority has not established a procedure for communicating with their grandchildren, you are entitled to go to court. The possibility of going to court for the protection of their rights is not conditional on a preliminary appeal for the resolution of the issue to the guardianship and trusteeship bodies, and you can turn to the court, bypassing the guardianship and trusteeship body. Land Legal Group is a Los Angeles based family law firm.
However, in most cases this should not be done. In all cases, the dispute between you and the grandchildren’s parents about communication will be resolved taking into account the opinion of the guardianship and trusteeship body that is involved in the case and it is advisable to enlist its support. In cases where the parents of the child were deprived of parental rights and the child was placed under guardianship, the guardian also does not have the right to prevent the child from communicating with his grandfather and grandmother. Grandmothers and grandfathers, under certain circumstances, can maintain contact with their grandchildren even in the event of the death of their children, who are the parents of grandchildren, and the subsequent adoption of grandchildren by other persons. Such a possibility exists even with the lack of consent of the adoptive parents. Hire a Los Angeles family law lawyer today.
