Grandparents Rights in Ontario, California & the Inland Empire
Honest Answers for Your Family
California does protect grandparent rights and step parent rights. There are provisions in the California family code, which allow visitation rights to step parents, grandparents, and other third parties who have played a significant role in a child’s life. The court will look at what is in the best interest of the child to determine if court ordered visitation is appropriate.
If you have lived with a child or experienced daily and ongoing contact with a child, removing that relationship can be emotionally harmful to the child. Once a significant relationship has been formed, you have the right to protect that relationship, whether you entered the child’s life as a stepparent, grandparent, or even a boyfriend or girlfriend of the child’s birth parent. At the end of the day, the courts do not make decisions based on physical connections. The courts are interested in doing what is best for children.
