Grandparents’ Custody Rights
Grandparents rights are an important part of our legal practice. In Pennsylvania, grandparents have special status in child custody law. Any grandparent has the right to seek custodial time with a grandchild. In certain circumstances, grandparents have the right to seek primary physical custody, enabling their grandchildren to live with them.
