Queens Grandparent's Rights

Each Queens Family Lawyer in the Law Firm, understands those times when a wife and husband legally separate, divorce, or break up, there are other relatives affected by the change. The victims of Child Support and Custody issues, sadly, are the children. But, Grandparents are also greatly traumatized by the incident. A Queens Grandparents Rights Lawyer comprehends the capacity grandparents fill in a child’s life—and equally how a child can enhance their grandparent’s life. A Queens Grandparents Rights Attorney with Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC extends a consultation for free to those aspiring to preserve their relationship with grandchildren and help battle for their liberties.

Grandparents face limitations in their rights making visitation or guardianship very difficult to secure. Parental rights are different from the rights of Grandparents, and our attorneys understand these differences. Although New York State has some of the briefest provisions regarding grandparent custody, they are not interpreted easily. The law does, however, provide visitation by grandparents if at least one parent has expired, but only after it is determined to be most beneficial plan for the minor. This issue is paramount—grandparents will be granted contact with grandchildren by Queens Family Courts if found as the child’s best interest.

A skilled Queens Grandparents Rights Attorney can make available to you the options for those desiring to be with their grandchildren. We will support you in pleading for permanent custody if the parent(s) of the child have died.

From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated.
