Legal Solutions For Grandparents And Grandchildren
Family life does not always follow a straight and narrow story. Adult children are sometimes incapacitated, incarcerated or deployed overseas in the military. For a variety of reasons, many grandparents find themselves raising grandchildren for extended periods of time or indefinitely.
Grandparents in parental roles soon realize their need for legal authority to enroll their grandchildren in school, take them to the doctor and watch out for many other areas of their lives. Critical questions then come up, such as:
- “Will powers of attorney work in our situation?”
- “Should we try to become legal guardians of our grandchildren?”
- “Should we seek to adopt our grandchild?”
Whatever legal issues you face as you care for a grandchild or grandchildren, a qualified family law attorney can provide peace of mind through customized solutions. Branch Law Firm welcomes your request for advice.

No matter what dilemmas you face in your cross-generational family relationships, at Branch Law Firm, we understand that you have your grandchildren’s long-term well-being at heart. We are equipped to help you negotiate or even fight for their best interests.
