Grandparent Rights

Nevada Grandchildren Visitation Attorney

Grandparents often wonder what to do when they are denied the opportunity to have visitation with their grandchildren. Grandparents are entitled to visitation with their grandchildren when it is in the best interests of the grandchildren. When a grandchild is endangered by an unfit mother or father, grandparents are often uncertain about their legal rights and remedies.

In Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57, 147 L. Ed. 2d 49, 120 S. Ct. 2054 (2000), the United States Supreme Court upheld grandparent visitation rights provided the decisions of Parents are given special weight when determining whether grandparent visitation is in the best interest of the minor children.

Exactly what is visitation? To put it into its simplest form, visitation is when the court sets a specific schedule for a person to have access to the child. In other words in the case of grandparent’s visitation the court will order that the children be made available to the grandparent on specific day for a specified amount of time.

Under NRS 125C.050(3) a party may seek a reasonable right to visit the child if they have “been denied or unreasonably restricted visits with the child” where a divorce is pending, the parents are already divorced, or a parent is deceased.

I had a case where something very bad happened to me and my family. I came to see Mr. Tomsheck on the advice of a friend. He and his staff, especially his assistant Jennifer, were AWESOME. They resolved my case, saved me thousands of dollars and were a blessing from God. I love Mr. Tomsheck and his whole office. Personal Injury Client “T”

I took my injury case to Josh and his law firm after my previous lawyer had not gotten the results I felt he should. Josh took over my case late in the discovery process. After a couple depositions and Motions (which we won) before the Court, Josh was able to secure a settlement for me and my family well in the six figures on a case where my previous lawyer couldn’t even get an offer of $10,000.
