Defending Your Right To See Your Grandchildren
Watching your grandchildren grow is a source of pride and amazement. You treasure the time you spend with them. Unfortunately, family circumstances may arise that threaten to bring an end to these visits.
After a divorce, death of your child or family dispute, you may no longer have access to your grandchildren. In New Jersey, grandparents do not have the same legal rights as parents. However, the state does recognize the positive impact a grandparent can have on a child. For this reason, grandparents can petition for visitation rights.
Sharon E. Johnson, co-founding partner at Johnson & Johnson, Attorneys At Law, represents Morris County grandparents who have been denied visitation rights. Trained in mediation and experienced in litigation, she can help you identify the best approach according to your circumstances.
Establishing A Strong Case For Grandparents’ Rights
Attorney Johnson uses her knowledge of the state Grandparents’ Visitation Statute to create a compelling argument to support visitation applications. She has been instrumental in securing access for these important events for grandparents:
- School events, such as graduations and programs
- Extracurricular activities
- Important milestones, such as holiday gatherings and birthday parties
Ms. Johnson understands that child custody and visitation disputes are highly personal affairs and works to minimize the impact these conflicts have on relationships. You can rely on her to handle your difficult matter compassionately.
