- Grandparents Rights -
The state of Georgia recognizes that the relationship with a grandparent is important to a child, and gives the grandparents the right to seek visitation when it is otherwise unavailable to them. This might occur when one parent is deceased, or does not get visitation with the children. The grandparents may file a separate action against the custodial parent to seek visitation rights with their grandchildren. However, because of a recent Supreme Court of Georgia ruling, the legislature had to re-write the statute to eliminate the right of the grandparent to intervene where the grandchild is living with both biological parents in an intact family. The custody of a child cannot be given to someone who is not a biological parent unless it is determined, by clear and convincing evidence, that it would be in the child's best interest to live with a relative other than the biological parent. It is no longer necessary that the parent be found to be unfit. If fitness of a parent is an issue in deciding custody the Judge will sometimes ask for a Guardian Ad Litem to help investigate from the child's perspective and make a recommendation to the Court.

Visits with grandparents are a precious and integral part of a child's experience. The loving and nurturing relationship between grandparents and a grandchild often provides the child with intangible benefits that cannot be derived from other relationships. Increasingly, however, grandchildren, often the product of broken homes, have been deprived of contact with their grandparents. The legislature and courts, cognizant of the importance of the grandparent-grandchild relationship, have implemented procedures by which grandparents can seek visitation with their grandchildren. These laws, however, do not give a grandparent an absolute or unqualified right to visitation. Instead, as in all cases involving child custody and visitation, the primary inquiry is "what is in the best interests of the children." It is the grandparent's burden to show that it is in the best interest of the child for the grandparent to have visitation. Before the court will even consider whether visitation is in the best interests of the child, the grandparent must show that he or she has "standing" to seek visitation. As written and interpreted in New York, for instance, only a natural grandparent or grandparent through adoption has standing to seek visitation with a grandchild. The statute is severely limited in scope and the New York courts have not been expansive in their construction of this law. For example, it has been held that other family members (e.g., uncles and even great grandparents) lack standing to seek visitation with children. In at least one case, a court held that a natural grandparent, who renounced her parental rights to her daughter, the mother of her grandchild, lacked standing to seek visitation with the grandchild.

You Owe Yourself Better
It is hard to imagine how difficult a divorce can be, until you are involved in one. Suddenly, the unthinkable is happening, and a divorce has become inevitable. At this point, you can decide to wage a bitter war, or you can try to negotiate a reasonable outcome.
Mr. Fayne has worked on many divorce cases where it seemed that the spouses would never agree on anything, and has managed to find common ground.
Do you really want a judge to decide how your property is divided? Do you want a judge to decide what is in the "best interest" of your children? Mr. Fayne believes that the best result is achieved through negotiation, not by an edict from a judge. The judge won't have to live with his decision you will.
Do yourself a favor from the start, and hire an attorney who cares about your welfare.

Date Released: August 2001 Title Grandparents Contributor Alison Shaw Contributing Firm: Wallmans Lawyers This paper was presented at a LAAMS Conference on 7th December 2000 in Adelaide Introduction Grandparents play an important role in modern family life and in particular in the lives of children in the crossfire of separation and divorce. Like other member of extended family, grandparents can provide support, stability, identity and family connection for children. They can also provide security and protection especially at times where there are family problems. They are often relied upon to assist with the supervision and day to day care of children and often have the time to spend with grandchildren to provide the special attention and care needed by children. The role of grandparents today is often more than just to reinforce the love and teachings of parents but extends to taking on the role of the primary care giver of children. It is also to provide support and reassurance to parents who are often parenting alone. After separation disputes between parents often spillover to include grandparents and other members of the family and children are then often deprived of the love and care that they other wise would receive except for the breakdown of the marriage. As a result, grandparents and other people significant in the lives of children sometimes need to make applications to the Family Court for contact with or the children. There are other circumstances including the death of a parent where it is appropriate for grandparents to make an application for the residence of children.

Information Sheet No 24
It is often difficult in a relationship breakdown for grandparents (and other relatives, eg uncles and aunts, etc) to maintain contact with children embroiled in a matrimonial dispute.
Often, grandparents will have played a significant role in the upbringing and nurturing of the children.
The Family Law Act significantly recognises that the grandparents of a child have the right to institute proceedings to ask for parenting orders in relation to children.
In considering whether the Court will make any orders for the grandparents, the Court will always regard the best interests of the children as the paramount consideration.
There is no right at law that grandparents must have contact or continue to see their grandchildren.
The Family Law Act does, however, recognise the importance of the roles that other persons play in the child's upbringing.
Each matter will depend upon the particular facts and peculiarities of circumstances relating to the children.
In general, however, as grandparents or other important relatives of the child, you do have the ability to negotiate and to seek orders for ongoing contact with the children and if this is in the children's best interest then the Family Court will try to facilitate such contact.

Read the U.S. Supreme Court's 2000 decision on Grandparent Rights, TROXEL et vir. v. GRANVILLE For many people, one of life's great joys is time spent with grandchildren. The traditional grandparent-grandchild relationship provides opportunities for fun and fellowship between the generations. Parents often appreciate relief from child care responsibilities. Grandmother and Grandfather can provide advice and guidance to the grandchildren from a wise and experienced perspective. But when the grandparent-grandchild relationship is disrupted, it often results in heartache for both. When a couple separates or divorces, the courts often play a major role in deciding custody of the children and visitation rights of the non-custodial parent. But a grandparent who has forged a bond with the children may be left out of a court order or a settlement agreement. When spouse dies and leaves small children, the remaining spouse may move far away and/or remarry. Again, the grandparents may be prevented from spending time with the grandchildren. Grandparents of children born out of wedlock may not always be welcome when they wish to visit the child. Disagreement between grandparents and their children may result in a family rift that isolates the grandchildren from their grandparents. Whatever the reason, the result may be tremendous disappointment for grandparents and grandchildren who are not allowed to spend time together.
