Grandparents' Rights Archives

Do grandparents have the right to see grandchildren in Texas?

For grandparents, watching their grandchildren grow up is a wonderful experience. Sadly, not all grandparents can experience that because of tensions in the family or a variety of other reasons. Some grandparents have taken to seeking visitation rights to be able to spend time with their grandchildren. For grandparents in Texas, learning about these grandparents' rights might help to make the process of seeking those rights easier.

Grandparents seeking custody or visitation face an uphill battle

In recent years, more and more grandparents are taking an active role in their grandchildren's lives. U.S. Census Bureau records show that, in 2011, one out of every 10 children lived with at least one grandparent. Over half of those grandparents - roughly 3 million - provided primary care for their grandchild.
