What Rights Do Grandparents Have In Arkansas?
Unlike mothers and fathers, grandparents do not have a well-defined legal right to be involved in the lives of their grandchildren. If you want to learn more about your rights as a grandparent or you are currently being prevented from seeing your grandchildren, it is in your best interest to discuss your rights with a knowledgeable family law attorney.

Is It Possible To Gain Custody And Visitation Rights?
Unfortunately, grandparents have very limited rights. There are very few circumstances in which legal visitation rights will be granted to a grandparent. The two most common circumstances are the imprisonment or death of a grandchild’s parent. The reason for this is that it is considered important for children to have access to both sides of their family. If their parent is out of the picture, grandparents are sometimes able to step in and gain visitation rights.
