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.
