As a grandparent, it is important to note that there is a difference between grandparent access and grandparent custody. In general, achieving grandparents’ access or custody to their grandchildren is possible and can be difficult. At the Law Office of Carol A. Wilson, we have over 30 years of experience in helping grandparents with these family law issues. The most well-known case is the United States Supreme Court case, Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57 (2000). The Court held that a fit parent has the right to determine whether a grandparent has access to their grandchild and only in limited circumstances should anyone, even grandparents, be able to alter that. Texas case law and statutes have adapted to meet the requirements of Troxel since the ruling was issued by our United States Supreme Court.
