Can You Pursue Grandparents’ Rights In Pennsylvania?
Here are a few scenarios:
- The parent is deceased: If your son or daughter passed away, you need to ask for visitation rights with your grandchild so that he or she does not lose contact with your side of the family.
- The parent is absent or unable to care for the child: If you are raising your grandchild and the grandchild lives in your home, you should seek a written custody agreement or order.
- The parent is incarcerated: If your son or daughter is serving prison time, you may need to gain the legal right to step in and care for your grandchild.
