Grandparent Visitation Rights?
I Am Adopted And I Have A Son. Can My Adopted Parents Be Granted Grandparents Visitation Rights In The State Of Pa?
The fact that you’re adopted is irrelevant. Your adoptive parents are your legal parents, and therefore have all the rights of parents.
In Pennsylvania a grandparent has the right to petition for visitation if:
(1) the grandparent is the parent of a deceased parent
(2) the parents of the grandchild are separated or divorced
(3) the child previously resided with the grandparents for a year or longer
I *believe* those are the only instances in which a grandparent in PA can petition for visitation.
Check with a local attorney about it.
EDITED TO ADD THIS:
The US Supreme Court, in the Troxel v. Granville case, did not rule that grandparents do not have the right to be awarded visitation if the parents are opposed to it and are fit. The ruling basically stated that the Washington grandparent visitation statute was unconstitutional (at that time) because it was *too board*. And Troxel v. Granville was a very specific case in which the grandparents WERE being allowed visitation, but they wanted MORE.
Every state allows for grandparents visitation (in some form or another) and a court can award a grandparent visitation even if the parents are fit, if it’s determined to be in the best interest of the child.
However, in PA it *appears* that in order to petition the grandparent would have to fall into one of the three categories mentioned above.

What Does A Family Court Lawyer Do?
What Does A Family Court Lawyer Do? Is There An Article Online That Tells About It? What Is The Average Salary Range? What Types Of People Would You Generally Deal With? How Often Would You Have Case, And What Kinds Of Cases? Thanks. And Would You Get To Argue In Court?
Family law is divorce, child custody, Child Protective services cases, and enforcement of child support. That type of thing.
These attorneys are generrally self employed or work for law firms taht handle this type of case. I snow some who charge $700. per hour. The expenses of running an office have to come out of that, and any employees the attorney has need to be paid, so they may not get to keep but a small fraction of the fee.
They may go to court daily, or at least weekly. There are contested hearings on many family law type of matters, so yes you would get to argue in court, and cross examine witnessesses in jury trial. Even if the state does not allow a defense to divorce there can still be a tral over the disposition of the property, or the custody of the children.
What kind of people would you generally deal with? Well, there is a saying among attorneys, "Criminal clients are some of the worst people in the community, but they are on their best behavior when dealing with their attorney, and family law clients are some of the best people in the community, but they are on their worst behavior when dealing with their attorney in their case."
I prefer the ones on their best behavior. It is never any fun to have to deal with a person who is angry, bitter, hateful, petty, and vindictive, even if you are not the subject of their rage.

Need Legal Advice...?
I Was Involved In A Domestic Violence Situation And I Am The Victim. I Live In Oregon And Instantly When Something Like This Happens A No Contact Order Is Put On The Parties And They Can Have No Kind Of Contact What So Ever.. Which Is Difficult When You Have Been In This Relationship For A Very Long Time. My Question Is We Received The Paperwork Back From The Police And I Had Given A Verbal Statement That Day When Everything Happen To The Cops But What They Have Typed Out That I Said Has Some Discrepancies To What I Actually Really Did Say.. To The Point Where It Affects The Case.
It Says, &Quot;He Pulled A Knife Out On Me&Quot;
What I Really Said, &Quot;He Grabbed A Knife And Started To Stab The Wall&Quot;
He Never Threatened Me With The Knife... And Now He Has A Assault Domestic Violence Charge And He Never Even Hit Me, Beat Me, Put A Bruise On Me.. Never Said He Was Going To Hurt Me With The Knife.. Nothing Like That..
How Can I Fix This? Do I Have To Get A Lawyer? Or Should I Just Talk To The Lawyer The State Gave Him To Represent His Case?!?!
Can I Get Perjury Put On Me.. I Didn'T Give A False Statement The Cops Just Wrote Down The Wrong Thing... They Didn'T Write What I Said...
If you say "he grabbed a knife and started to stab the wall" and you were in the general vicinity, a judge could view that as threatening behavior which, in many jurisdictions, is all you need to establish domestic violence. Oftentimes the domestic violence laws can result in restraining orders if the respondent commits a physical assault, sexual assault, criminal threatening, property damage, false imprisonment (eg. prevents you from leaving), stalking or harassment.
Talk with a lawyer, call the domestic violence hot-line, go to a law school legal clinic if one is nearby, speak with a member of the clergy or go over this with a therapist or mental health counselor. They can all help out and give you much better suggestions on where to go from here.
