Attorney for Grandparents' Rights in Albuquerque
Securing Visitation & Custody Rights for Grandparents
Today’s grandparent may be involved in the lives of their children as minimally as providing daycare or as extensively as providing full-time care to a child in the home. A parent of the child may disappear and appear back in the child’s life, wreaking havoc in the child’s sense of stability. The grandparent may feel he or she has no rights when the parent threatens to take the child back if the grandparent doesn’t provide some service or money. At Sandia Family Law, we can help you navigate the complicated waters of guardianship law and fight to maintain your good relationship with your grandchildren.

New Mexico Grandparents Rights
Under the Kinship Guardianship Act, New Mexico courts, may grant a grandparent or another relative custody or guardianship of the children if one or more of the following conditions apply:
- One or both parents have died.
- The child resided with you for a specific length of time.
- One or both of the parents have been deemed “unfit” either for physical and mental limitations, drug and alcohol dependency, a history of abuse or domestic violence, or extended periods of incarceration.
Grandparents’ Visitation Rights
Following a divorce, grandparents are sometimes left out of the loop and are not allowed to see their grandchildren. While grandparents’ visitation rights are not guaranteed, our child custody lawyers can fight to include you in the visitation arrangement that is agreed upon by the court. If you are seeking grandparents’ visitation rights after the divorce is final, we can work to petition the court and fight for your rights to see your grandchildren.

“William Hoskovec is a spectacular attorney. He's extremely honest with his practices and prices, he took time to answer all my questions as well as made sure I was comfortable going into court by explaining everything. There wasn't a day that I thought he was unprepared or didn't care about my case.
