Suffolk County Grandparent's Rights

A Suffolk County Family Lawyer will counsel a client, when a husband and wife legally separate, break up, or divorce, many other family members are affected by the change. Frequently, children are the object of Visitation, Child Support, or Custody issues. Moreover, grandparents are often greatly affected by the situation at hand. A Suffolk County Grandparents Rights Lawyer understands the role grandparents have in a child’s life—and the degree to which a child can enhance a grandparent’s life. A Suffolk County Grandparents Rights Lawyer at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC will offer a free consultation to couples desiring to safeguard the relationship with their grandchildren and defend their liberties.

Sadly the rights of grandparents are restricted; therefore it may be difficult to secure guardianship or visitation of grandchildren. Our Suffolk County Family lawyers regard the distinct diversities between those cases involving Grandparents and those cases involving parents. There is not an exuberant amount of provisions in New York law regarding the visitation and or child custody of children for grandparents, but the ones that exist are not easy to interpret. However, in cases where at least one parent has deceased, New York law does provide visitation for grandparents. This arrangement must first be determined to be most advantageous to the child. This element is paramount—Suffolk County Family Courts are most willing to grant contact with grandchildren once this is determined to benefit the child.

A seasoned Suffolk County Grandparents Rights Lawyer can show you the options available to grandparents seeking to obtain rights to be with their grandchildren. We can also guide you in pleading for guardianship or custody if the child’s parent(s) have expired. Our Suffolk County Family attorneys have clients requesting custody or guardianship of children whose parent(s) are observed to be incapable of providing proper care.

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. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
