Gross & Miller Attorneys at Law is a Georgia family law firm helping clients throughout the Atlanta metro area. We represent grandparents, family members and other third parties as they seek to preserve their relationships with the children who are important in their lives.
We Can Help You Protect and Care for the Children in Your Life
Families are diverse. To keep up with the changing needs of today’s families, courts have become a place where non-biological parents can seek assistance in legally forming families based around the best interests of the children. This includes placing grandparents, other family members or friends in the role of the parents to give the best care possible for the children.
Our law firm is knowledgeable and experienced in addressing the sensitive issues involved in grandparent rights and related matters. We can help with the following types of cases:
- Custody (permanent, temporary or third party)
Grandparent rights or third-party custody and visitation cases are different from cases involving a custody dispute between the biological parents. It may be difficult for you to obtain visitation rights and/or to contact the children if the parents object. We will help you understand your rights and give you clear information about your legal options. We believe in the importance of understanding the needs of all involved. Then we will pursue resolutions that advance your goals while protecting the children involved as well.
Our lawyers also have experience with situations involving allegations that one or both parents are unfit as parents. Reasons for this may include alcohol and/or drug abuse, child abuse, molestation, neglect or other circumstances. In these cases, the grandparents or other caregivers are often in the best position to meet the children’s needs and provide emotionally and/or financially for the child’s best interests. In a custody dispute, the best interest of the child is paramount. Other clients have already played a major role in raising the children and want to maintain that close bond with the children through visitation or custody. We can help you seek temporary or permanent custody or visitation if your family is affected by any of these situations.
We understand the importance of family and your desire to do what is best for the children close to you. Whatever the circumstances of your case, our metro Atlanta grandparents’ rights attorneys care about building a healthy and successful family that includes you. We will work closely with you to identify your needs and goals and help you achieve a resolution that protects the children for whom you care.
