Can I Get Custody Of My Grandchild In Queens?

Grandparents are sometimes able to obtain custody of their grandchildren in Queens.

While the rights of parents are given much greater consideration by judges than the rights of grandparents, ultimately a judge has to make a determination that’s in the best interest of the children.

In cases where the parents of your grandchildren are incarcerated, experiencing drug addiction, or otherwise unable to provide a safe and stable home and are unlikely to be able to do so for the foreseeable future, it may be possible to prevail in a custody motion.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we work with families in Queens to develop the best framework for raising children.
