Child Custody: Grandparent's Rights

Mr. Fayne's specialty in elder law allows him to assist older clients with their special legal needs and concerns.

In recent years, Mr. Fayne has been active in securing "grandparenting time" for clients. "Grandparenting time" is the court-ordered right for grandparents to have visitation with their grandchildren.

While it is not always possible to obtain grandparenting time, Mr. Fayne has achieved some orders that other attorneys might have deemed impossible. Mr. Fayne will fight hard to get the right result for his clients.

Grandparents in Michigan are fortunate, in that Michigan has one of the broadest grandparenting time laws in the nation.

Mr. Fayne has also assisted grandparents in custody disputes with their children, or with the spouse of a deceased child. Unfortunately, grandparents have very limited rights in these cases, and courts are often forced to decline relief due to narrowly drafted statutes which don't allow grandparents to seek custody. If you are a grandparent, trying to protect your grandchildren from an abusive environment, you need the assistance of an attorney who understands the law. While a good result cannot be guaranteed, a good attorney may be able to find a way to get the results you need.
