You may have come to this Texas family law website in search of answers to this question because of a special family situation involving your role as a grandparent:

  • Your son or daughter may be divorced or separated from the other parent, who has primary custody.
  • The “other parent” may be blocking your attempts to spend quality time with your grandson or granddaughter.
  • You may believe that your child and/or the other parent lack competency to provide a safe, quality environment for your grandchild, and you wish to step up to the plate.
  • You may want to petition to be named a conservator of your grandchild, or even explore the option of adopting your grandchild.
  • Your son or daughter may be in Afghanistan or in prison, and you want to claim the visitation time with your grandchild that your child cannot fulfill because of the absence.
  • Your son or daughter may be deceased, and you want to continue to have access to your grandchild.
