Many grandparents play a key role in the life of a child by serving as an additional source of love and support. But life can be very unpredictable and the scenario under which the grandparents enjoyed a close relationship with their grandchild can change quickly.


The legal team at Mazur, Bocketti, Nisonoff Khavulya P.C., has helped many grandparents in New York and New Jersey who were denied visitation due to family conflicts, or who were attempting to gain full custody of a grandchild due to unusual circumstances, such as the death of a parent, an unfit parent or an unsafe environment in the home.


Manhattan Grandparent Visitation Attorneys


Grandparent's rights is a specialized area of the law, and we have become well-known for our successful strategies to obtain a positive outcome for all parties involved. In addition to the rights of our clients, we are constantly focused on the best interests of the children and/or grandchildren who are involved in the cases we resolve.


Although we consider every client and their case to be unique, many grandparents have similar questions:


  • What happens if the grandparent and the parent have a falling out and the parent prevents the grandparent from visiting the grandchild?
  • What happens in the event of the death of the parent and the surviving parent attempts to prevent the relationship between the grandchildren and the in laws?
  • What rights do grandparents have when their child becomes divorced and their child is not the custodial parent?


Our attorneys can challenge a denial of visitation and/or pursue a change in the custody of their grandchildren through our tactical use of the New York State Domestic Relations Law. We use several effective methods to demonstrate to the court that your request serves the best interests of the grandchild.
