Grandparents Desiring Guardianship

Sometimes, a biological parent is not in a suitable position to raise a child, and a grandparent will step in to seek custody. When awarding guardianship, the court grants legal authority to a responsible individual that can act in the child’s best interests. It is possible for a grandparent to petition for guardianship of a child when it is in the best interests of that child. When a parent or parents are in a difficult situation and unable to suitably care for their child, Attorney Lowry can pursue a guardianship over the child on behalf of the grandparents.
