Las Vegas Grandparent Visitation Lawyers
If you or anyone you know in southern Nevada—Las Vegas, Henderson,
Boulder City, or Primm or Mesquite—has grandchildren and needs help making sure your rights to be part of their lives are protected, you need the best legal assistance you can get.
You need Doug Crawford Law.
The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) has an entire chapter, NRS 125C.050 dedicated specifically to the rights of grandparents. Just like parents, grandparents are essential to bringing up strong children, one of the state of Nevada’s goals for Silver State families. Provided that you meet certain basic requirements, we will petition the state to make sure you remain in the lives of your grandchildren.
It may be the case that a parent or guardian is withholding visitation rights and keeping you away from your grandkids. Unless the court has upheld a ruling in the parent or guardian’s favor, this action is illegal under Nevada law. While the child is a minor, you have the right to make reasonable requests for time with him or her. We may have to present a case proving that time spent with your grandchildren is in their best interests, which in most cases is easily managed. I have experience with this type of law and I will work to help protect that right so you maintain your bond with your grandchildren.
Though not very common, if the parents of your grandchild are losing or relinquishing their rights to the child, you may want to ensure you retain the right to visitation. There is a timeline for this type of case and we will need to file on your behalf before the parents relinquish or terminate their rights. In cases like this time is of the essence. Do not wait. It’s possible your grandchild could be placed in the custody of a public agency or private agency and your relationship with your grandchild could be on the line. You need to reach out to me as soon as possible.
Whatever your needs are, I can help you maintain the relationship with the young life that you are helping to raise. Whether the issue you face is divorce, separate maintenance, separation, death of a parent, loss of parental rights, or in a worst case scenario of a parent trying to manipulate the child in a type of grandparental alienation, even though the struggle to keep you in your grandchild’s life may take longer than you expect, I will fight to keep you in that child’s life.
I have over 30 years’ worth of experience in this type of law and have seen most everything. I am hard to surprise. Your life, and the life of your grandchild, will be better with the two of you together.
