THIRD PARTY PARENTAL RIGHTS
If you have taken on the responsibilities of a parent, it’s important to formalize your relationship so that you also have the legal rights that come with being a parent. Third-party parental rights are considered when a third party non-parent assumes the role of a parent and holds himself or herself out as a parent. Whether you are a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, a stepparent or another adult who has had child care responsibilities for an extended time, we can help you get the third-party custody rights you need to fully support the children for whom you are responsible. Our attorneys have contributed their skills in this area to a number of groundbreaking cases that both denied and affirmed third-parent status. Our work in this area is well-respected in the family law community.
