Are You A Grandparent Seeking Visitation Rights?

As the structure of the traditional American family continues to change, grandparents continue to play a larger role in raising and caring for their grandchildren. The Grandparent Visitation Act of Illinois allows for grandparent visitation with grandchildren without the presence of the parent. The act was passed in response to the Illinois legislature’s recognition of the importance of this critical relationship.

At Hurst, Robin & Kay, LLC, we recognize the importance of this relationship in the lives of children. We also understand that there are situations in which parents unreasonably object to visitation between a child and grandparents; this is where we can help.

We Know How To Utilize Experts

Grandparent visitation cases typically involve emotional and sensitive issues. In cases where child abuse or neglect is suspected, we assist grandparents in petitioning the court for custody or guardianship of the grandchildren.

Having assisted grandparents in these difficult cases, we know how to effectively interface with psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health experts. These individuals may be hired by us or appointed by the court to assist in making decisions that are in the best interests of the grandchildren.
