Springfield Grandparents' Rights Lawyers

Grandparents play an important role in a child's upbringing. At Leahy, Van Vactor, Cox & Melendy, LLP, our lawyers have extensive experience helping grandparents protect their relationships with their grandchildren. We are committed to grandparents' rights.

Protect Your Relationship With Your Grandchild

Grandparents' rights cases come in many forms. Perhaps your grandchild is being pulled away from you in the aftermath of a divorce. Perhaps your son or daughter has passed away, and your grandchild's remaining parent is refusing to let you spend time with your grandchild. These are challenging scenarios, but you may have options.

Many of the cases our grandparents' rights attorneys in Springfield, Oregon, have handled involve a grandparent who has assumed the role of parent or has built an ongoing relationship with the grandchild. Perhaps the grandchild's parent or parents abandoned the child, were incarcerated, addicted to drugs or alcohol, or otherwise unable to fulfill their parental duties. The grandparent may have taken over those duties and wants to create a child custody arrangement, or perhaps even adopt the child. We can help.

Non-parent Child Custody Matters

In addition to representing grandparents, our lawyers also protect the rights of stepparents and other non-parents who have established a parental relationship with a child. Whether addressing child custody and parenting time issues or considering options like adoption, we have the skill and experience to formalize and protect these important relationships.
