Under Minnesota law, grandparents have specific rights relating to the custody and visitation of their grandchildren. There are specific circumstances that allow a grandparent to seek custody and/or visitation of their grandchildren, including the death of a parent or divorce, or if a child has resided with the grandparent.

When a couple separates or divorces, the relationship between children and their grandparents can be disrupted. Best & Flanagan’s Family Law team represents the rights of grandparents inside and outside of family court. Our team has successfully obtained third party custody and visitation for grandparents in counties throughout Minnesota and out-of-state. 

In the event of a deceased parent, grandparents of the deceased may be granted visitation rights to the child by the court. In addition, we advise on the legal rights and needs of grandparents who serve as primary or intermittent caregivers, particularly those faced with parents involved in drug abuse, jail, abandonment or neglect.
