Stephanie Gibbs and Stephanie Jenkins speaks with My Carolina Today When Parents separate or divorce often Grandparents are caught in the middle. The first thing to do is to consider the relationship. Court may be able to be avoided. If a Grandparent has a feeling that their visitation rights or relationship might be cut off by the in law parent, the Grandparent may want to consider what is call intervening. In North Carolina, there are laws permitting Grandparents to “intervene.” There are 4 statues that cover Grandparents. Under the law, a Grandparent can intervene in a pending custody case. If there is a case going to court to decide custody, a Grandparent can ask the court to ensure visitation. The Grandparent is often caregivers for the children which can actually help a Grandparents case for visitation because the Grandparent can often have what the courts consider a substantial relationship. Courts can decide whether a substantial relationship exists and whether it’s in the child’s best interest that a Grandparent be allowed to have independent visitation regardless of the visitation schedule established. The court must consider whether the Grandparent should have individual time separate from the parents. www.gailorwallis.com Raleigh Divorce Law Firms Gailor, Wallis & Hunt, PLLC 1101 Haynes Street, Suite 201 Raleigh, North Carolina 27604 Toll-Free: 866.362.7586 Facsimile: 919.832.8283 Legal Notice: The information in this video is provided as a general reference
