Product Description
Anyone May Need Grandparents' Rights A bitter divorce, substance abuse, a sudden death, or any number of circumstances can put you, as a grandparent, at risk for losing touch with a grandchild. It is important to understand the complexity of the laws before you need to use them. When the unexpected occurs, you might react in the heat of the moment in ways that you will later regret. By reading this book, hopefully, you will be prepared to handle unfortunate circumstances in such away that will not jeopardize your right to be a part of your grandchild's life. In the previous chapters I have included stories of grandparents who fought for visitation with grandchildren in a variety of circumstances. The stories show how, through perseverance, many grandparents have prevailed. You may recognize situations with which your own children, your grandchildren, other family members, friends or neighbors are grappling. You may have thought that such heartaches do not affect people who own their own home, have a job, are educated, and are well thought of in their community. You may have thought that such distress is reserved for people who are somehow at fault for their misfortunes. You are wrong. Everyone is at risk. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Answers You Hope You'll Never Need
This book reminds us that even in the most loving and secure families, unimagined circumstances can arise that leave you reeling, not knowing how to proceed.
Dr. Slorah provides us with anecdotal reassurance that we are not alone,should we find ourselves in this terribly difficult situation, and a resourse guide on what needs to be done to ameliorate it.
This is one book that we all hope we'll never need but is invaluable if it is needed by us or a friend!

This book contains information that you could not obtain without a valued mentor.It is written in a concise manner and covers many situations that a grandparent might encounter. We believe it would be a great help to those having problems or trying to prevent problems.

4-0 out of 5 stars As an Adoptive Parent
As the father of two adopted children I'm very sensitive to the loss or potential loss of a child.Having gone through the adoption system I've attempted to pass along my understanding of that process so when I read "Grandparents' Rights" I was thrilled by Dr. Slorahs' step-by-step methodology which guided me through the process of understanding Grandparents rights, as well as non-custodial parents rights.How wonderful to have such a practical handbook that gives you direction, guidance and sensible answers in dealing with very sensitive and challenging interpersonal relationships.

Your Grandchildren Need You in Their Lives.

Grandparents have long been the backbone to any family. In times of trouble, they are the first place struggling parents turn. However, when the struggles turn into a bitter divorce battle, it is the grandparents who are punished. Unfortunately, it is the children who ultimately suffer.

When, for whatever reason, you are prevented from being a part of their lives, you feel the pain, but they are the ones who lose. You have the right and the obligation to stand up for yourself and for your grandchildren.

Grandparents’ Rights fully explains what you can do to protect your relationship with your grandchildren. Learn the steps you can take to get the courts on your side and guarantee that you will be able to spend time with them. Written in easy-to-understand language, Grandparents’ Rightsteaches you how to:

• Work with your grandchildren’s parents to find the best
• Identify when legal action may be necessary to enforce your rights
• Take action if you think your grandchildren are being abused
• Increase the time you get to spend with your grandchildren

Product Description
With changes in demographics, grandparents are living longer and want to spend as much time as they can with their grandchildren. There is no other book in the marketplace that so clearly addresses the rights of this growing population.

This timely revision explains the ramifications for all 50 statesrelating to the recent U.S. Supreme Court case of Troxellvs. Granville. While the case took several twists and turns throughthe Washington state legal system, the final outcome held that thejudge's version of the "child's best interest" is not the onlydetermination that is used. A court must take into account a fitparent's version as well.

Divorced and deceased parents also are topics addressed in relation to grandparents' rights. In addition, easy-to-use, blank tear-out forms are available for immediate use, if warranted. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Legal Forms
Turns out I won't be needing these forms afterall, but someone else may find them helpful.

2-0 out of 5 stars "How To" get visitation in court when barred by mom/dad
The author presents the basic legal process on obtaining visitation rights via petitioning the circuit court in your state.The steps here are only for those who cannot negotiate reasonable visitation directly with the custodial parent.The book includes brief suggestions on hiring an attorney.The book is fairly dry and basic, with little commentary.An alternative would be to purchase a how-to divorce guide an apply the process to a grandparent motion; you may receive more in-depth information from a "how to" divorce guide on the court process than from this book. ...

Product Description
Grandparent rights in reality are about a child's right to maintain an ongoing relationship with loving grandparents with whom they have formed an attachment. Grandparents play a significant role in the lives of children, it is a unique and separate relationship therefore family dynamics should not pose a threat to the bond that has developed. Law reform as a deterrent for denied access and a means to furthur rights of grandparents and grandchildren is coincidently the focus and accomplishment of one individual grandmother, who happens to be the author. This ia true story of an ordinary individual who turned an adverse situation, that of a disenfranchised grandparent, into an opportunity, changing a law and helping others. The book weaves personal experiences and stories into practical advice for seeking balance during tumultuous times. Encouragement to become an active advocate on behalf of children's emotional security is the primary message. ... Read more

Product Description
If your adult child becomes incapacitated or dies, you do not automatically gain custody of your grandchildren. Sometimes, depending on the age of the children and whether or not they are adoptable will determine who gets custody. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal bonus monies are given to states each year when they exceed the number of adoptions from the previous year. Your grandchild may be needed to help reach the numbers necessary for your state to receive its bonus. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing
I am simply amazed that this little book has been a tool for so many people. I am told that it has reached the eyes and ears of local, state and federal government agencies, and consequently laws are being changed as we speak.

I am grateful that since I wrote this book, it is still holding the #3 spot in its category on Amazon.com as of this date, 10/30/2007. This tells me the movement for the subjects of this book is still gaining momentum, and that is what the book was written for.

In one review, Charlotte Hardwick, a brilliant author who wrote "Winning Your Child Custody War," called me a social detective. I am indebted to you Charlotte for showing me where my strengths are--strengths I did not realize I had. Be sure to look for other titles by this gifted author as she cuts to the chase and tells it like it is.

I did not suffer the traumas of the people I wrote about, but as I listened to their stories I cried right along with them at times. I realized they needed a voice; needed to be heard. "Remember Cynthia Rose" has helped give them that voice. They are making tremendous strides in their movement, and grandparents are becoming a force to be reckoned with.

I will tell you that I do indeed intend to write the rest of the books in the series, but for now, because the first one was so emotionally and mentally exhausting, I need a break. Please stay tuned.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kinship Care, the Best First Option
Because of Jeanne Sinclair-Krause's book "Remember Cynthia Rose" Cynthia Rose will know that her family loved her and fought for her. Many children will never know that anyone in their birth family cared. The great problems of the world are horrific, but they should not distract us from the personal dramas that leave dying families and wounded children. It is terrible when a family loses an adult member. It is criminal if a good, loving family loses the right and responsibility to care for the children of that adult. Often the cohesion of the core family doesn't survive the multiple loss. Social service agencies and community leaders will eventually understand what has happened and have to answer for the loss this child and her family have endured. As states are awarded funds for proper adoptions they should be fined for improper ones. Read this cautionary story and add your voice to the choir by talking to others about this problem and contacting your legislature for changes. I anxiously watch for more to come from this social detective.
