Grandparent Rights Ocean County NJ

Aggressive Lawyers Fighting for Grandparent Visitation in New Jersey

When most people think of visitation schedules, most think of only the biological parents. However, New Jersey is one of the few states that gives grandparents a legal right to visit with their grandchildren. This law allows a grandparent to petition the court for visitation only if it can be proven that it is in the best interest of the child. Proving this standard can be very difficult and it is highly recommended to have a lawyer on your side to fight for your visitation rights.

The best way to meet a tough challenge such as this is to have an aggressive litigation strategy that starts with a thoughtful battle plan. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, our attorneys will not only help you understand your rights to visitation, but we also develop a plan to protect them. Our grandparent visitation lawyers work with you to show the court that your relationship with your grandchild is close and valuable. In order to prove this to the court, our litigation strategy focuses on these factors:

  • Your relationship with the child
  • Whether there has ever been a history of abuse or neglect on your part
  • The frequency of contact you have had with the child
  • The time that has elapsed since you last had contact
  • The visitation agreement that exists between the parents, if the parents are separated or divorced
  • Your relationship with each of your grandchild's parents
  • The effect that visitation will have on the relationship between the child and parent
  • Toms River DCPP Investigations and Grandparents' Rights

If your grandchild and/or your grandchild's parents are dealing with a DCPP case and the children are not already placed with you, our Ocean County attorneys can help you get into the case and protect your rights. After all, you do not want your grandchildren to wind up in foster care! To see what our law firm can do for you, call our 24/7 hotline to receive a free initial consultation with no obligation to discuss your case today.
