The state of Georgia recognizes the grandparent-grandchild relationship as an important one. Therefore, grandparent's rights is an important legal area for both grandchildren and grandparents. Grandparents have the right to seek visitation through the courts when it is not available to them otherwise. Such a case may occur when one parent is not allowed visitation with the child, one parent is imprisoned, or one parent is deceased.
Grandparent's Right and Types of Actions
We have an enduring commitment to assist grandparents in establishing their rights, including visitation, child custody and guardianship. Grandparents may file an action against the custodial parent to seek visitation with their grandchild. However, a grandparent cannot intervene when the grandchild is living with both biological parents as a family unit.
