Grandparent Visitation

Grandparent Visitation

Divorce, the death of a parent, or fractured family relationships can impact the contact between grandparents and grandchildren.  When these cases arise, conversations can be strained and difficult.  While court is expensive – both financially and emotionally, mediation gives families the best chance of opening dialogue and finding healthy ways to move forward, focusing on what is best for children with grandparent visitation outlined.

Often opening up a court case can inflame an already upset family dynamic, but mediation can pave the way for communication and potential agreements without the threat of looming court dates and the costs of attorneys.

It is also important to know that if you are seeking Grandparents Rights in Kansas, the statutes allow for, and the Court will typically grant, the payment of the parents’ attorney fees from the Grandparents who filed the motion – in other words you may end up paying for all the attorneys if it goes to court. Mediation can help your family avoid these costs and focus on working together to find things you can all live with, if not love.
