Grandparents occupy a very unique place in the families of the 21 st century. Often they fill the role of babysitter, mentor, confidant, and friend, but the escalating levels of marriages that end in divorce strain these important and often vital relationships. A divorce not only complicates the lives of the partners, but also the relationships between spouses, children, and grandparents.
Texas law has very strict laws regarding the visitation rights of grandparents, depending on the unique circumstances of every situation. The difficult situations that surround many divorces often strain the relationships between the families of the parties, and this frustration is magnified should one of the grandparents contest their access to their grandchildren.
Unfortunately, these grandparents have little recourse if either spouse elects to deny visitation. If the parents of the child are the primary guardians, their desires can restrict the visitation rights of the grandparents. The laws are usually very clear in situations such as this, but there are always options.
Many times, a proper approach in discussion and negotiation can lead to a resolution where everyone feels that they have won. Most importantly, the children benefit from the love and involvement of more family members.
