Grandparent Visitation

The Minnesota statutes provide for the right of grandparents to visit their grandchildren under certain circumstances. This includes situations where a divorce or custody proceeding has occurred or is pending, a Recognition of Parentage has been signed, a parent is deceased, or a minor child resided with a grandparent for a period of twelve months.

The best interests of the children are paramount and any visitation awarded cannot interfere with the parent child relationship. In awarding grandparent visitation, the courts must consider the amount of personal contact between the grandparent and child. We can assist you in making sure the Court receives the necessary information to determine your visitation rights.
