Our Grandparents’ Rights Practice

At the Law Offices of John E. Kusturiss Jr., we have a clear and comprehensive understanding of the Pennsylvania statutes granting custody and visitation rights to grandparents. We will work closely with you to pursue partial custody or visitation rights when:

  • A birth parent of your grandchild is deceased
  • The parents of your grandchild are divorced or have been separated for six months
  • Your grandchild has lived with you for at least 12 months and then was taken back by a birth parent

The custody and visitation laws in Pennsylvania allow the court to make the determination of what is in the “best interests of the child.” In doing so, the court will look at the physical, educational, emotional and spiritual needs of the child. We will help you put together compelling arguments as to why it is in the best interests of your grandchildren to either live with or spend meaningful time with you.
