Grandparents’ and Third-Parties’ Rights in Custody Matters
When a child’s parents separate or divorce, it is not only the child and parents who are affected. Often, other relatives such as grandparents, aunts and uncles also lose something. In these instances, it is not always in the best interests of the child to lose such relationships with important relatives and other third parties.
At the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz, our Philadelphia grandparents’ rights lawyers understand that the guiding principle in all matters of child custody is assumed to be the best interests of the children. If you are interested in spending time with your grandchild, and you are willing to always put the child’s interests before your own, then contact us by calling 215-545-2880.

Practical, Realistic, Long-Term Solutions in Family Law
Often, child custody solutions involve grandparents or other third parties who seek partial or full custody. Caring adults who provide stability to children whose parents are unavailable or unable to care for them are often awarded full custody, allowing them to more fully care for all the children’s needs with full legal authority.
