Protect Your Right to Maintain a Relationship with Your Grandchildren
In Texas, many grandparents have certain rights to visitation with their grandchildren. It is healthy for children to have a relationship with their grandparents.
You may be able to obtain custody or visitation if:
Your child has passed away and you are being denied access to your grandchildren
You can prove eligibility as a de facto custodian
You meet the requirements of an eligible third party
Whether you are seeking custody for the child’s protection or visitation to remain present in your loved one’s life, Jamie Jordan, PLLC can help. Our Sugar Land Grandparents Rights Lawyer has over a decade of experience helping grandparents in Texas protect their rights.

Qualifying as a De Facto Custodian
You may be able to obtain custody of your grandchild if he/she has lived in your home and you have served as his/her primary caretaker. To meet the requirements to be a de facto custodian, your grandchild must have been living with you for an extended time, and the child’s parents must be unable to provide for the child properly.
It is in your best interests to work with a capable and knowledgeable attorney when seeking custody this way. We can help you craft a solid case that will improve your chances of success.
If you do not qualify as a de facto custodian but believe that your grandchild should be in your custody or have visitation time with you, you may be able to request custody or visitation as a third party. Third-party custody rights extend to grandparents, extended family members, and other individuals who have a solid case for why they should have the right to spend time with the child.
