Grandparents' Rights in Arkansas
The general rule is that a parent's choice is determinative on the issue of grandparent visitation. There are, however, many exceptions:
- If your grandchild has lived with you for an extended period of time, you may be able to obtain a fixed visitation schedule with your grandchild.
- If a parent is unfit, a grandparent may seek a conservatorship for the benefit of the child.
- If other factors make a compelling case that grandparent visitation is in the best interests of a child, a court may be inclined to award a grandparent a fixed visitation schedule.
If you need help pursuing a fixed visitation schedule with your grandchild, or if you require help with a conservatorship, adoption of a grandchild or another family law matter, we are pleased to speak with you about your legal rights and options.
