Does Anyone Know If Grandparents Have Rights?
Do You Know If Grandparents Have Rights To See Their Grandchildren In Kansas?
Grandparent's rights are hard to prove in any state. In order for grandparents to be granted visitation the court wants evidence that it will be in the best interest of the child for the grandparents to have contact with the children. What further complicates the case is that the court does not want to interfere with the parenting of the child (so long as the child is not being harmed by the parents).
It's actually easier in most jurisdiction for grandparents to obtain custody of children then it is for them to obtain visitation. That is because if the parents are not properly taking care of the children, then the court will look to the grandparents as the first logical replacement for custody. But, in a visitation case the grandparents are not seeking visitation because the child is being harmed or neglected (if that were the case the grandparents would be seeking custody). They are usually seeking custody because they have no contact with the parents and the parents are denying them access to the children. While there is nothing legal saying the parents have to grant them access, there are some cases where the court will rule in the grandparents favor.
In most cases if one of the parents is deceased, then the deceased parent's parents can be granted visitation. This is also true if one of the parent's is incarcerated, serving overseas or in some cases if the parent himself (or herself) has no contact with the child (by choice or through court order).
The only other case where grandparents have a good shot at getting visitation is when the child lived with, or was raised by the grandparent for a significant amount of time. In that case you can argue that it would be determental to the health and welfare of the child to sever that relationship.
If you do wish to go for visitation then you can pick up a petition in the family court of county where the child resides. You would benefit from hiring a really good, very experienced family law attorney. He will need a build a strong case to prove that it will benefit the child for you to have visitation. Should the case go to trial, expect to be in court for anywhere from several months to a year or more.
On a personal note, grandparent visitation cases are messy and ugly. In most cases the grandparents do not win and it tears the family further apart. Before filing a petition I would urge you to consider trying to work it out diplomatically. You'll have a better chance of seeing the child, and will not bankrupt yourself in the process.
How Good Are Prepaid Legal Services?
My husband, who is an associate, and I have had a membership through PrePaid Legal Services, Inc. for about 8 years and would never not have this service. Have any of the nay-sayers tried to call an attorney for simple advice? I was an admin for a lawyer about 6 years ago and when clients simply called I charged them by the quarter hour, at a rate of $135/hour (cheap by today's standards), just for the phone call! With PrePaid these consulation calls are free, and let me tell you we get our money's worth. And, you have access to a lawyer in whatever state you have an issue in. We are landlords and have had our law firm write letters to tenants in addition to giving us legal advice in unfavorable situations. AND, the law firms associated with PrePaid Legal are top rate firms. The nay-sayers should attend one of their open houses; they'd be impressed. Plus, for an additional $1 a month you can have 24 hour access to these lawyers. So, for less than a dollar a day, can you afford NOT to have the service? Most people spend more than that on coffee a day; what do you get out of that.
Also, we totally forgot at one point that we even had the service (shame on us because there were some instances looking back where we should have used it). In that time we had contacted another law firm about getting our Will done, at an estimate of $500-$600. That alone pays for the service for up to three years!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service to anyone, and strongly urge everyone to get it, even if it wasn't through my husband, because I feel that strongly about it. The business is also incredible. Do you know any other way to build your own business at a startup cost of $25 (current promotion) and an overhead of less than $30 a month (you do have to have a membership to be an associate)? I don't, at least not that's legal. My husband loves this business. He's actually in Atlanta right now at a business conference and he'll be in Las Vegas in September. They have so much fun while building a strong business. It's my husband's Plan A, but it can be a great Plan B in today's insecure job market.
I urge you to at least give the service a try. Contrary to some posts I've seen, if you do decide to cancel, it is not difficult at all, but I don't know why anyone would ever want to cancel.
Lawyers & Contracts?
Do Lawyers Have To Provide Legal Service Agreements? All The Information That Is Entailed To Retain The Lawyer.
How long has it been? You should have received a contract, but it is not required. I would call the lawyer up ask for his secretary or assistant and ask to copy your entire legal file (at your expense). You may just be out of luck though.

Need An Attorney That Specializes In Entertainment Law!?
Looking To Hire An Entertainment Lawyer Or Established Law Firm.
Need Legal Assistance/Advice On Copyright Laws, Trademark Laws, Etc... Would Also Need The Attorney(S) To Draft Relative Legal Documents.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney.
When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
