Grandparent Rights in Kansas and Missouri
Courts in Kansas and Missouri give considerable deference to the wishes of parents with respect to grandparent visitation. If both mom and dad are in the picture and both say that the grandparents should not see their grandchildren, then you are not likely to see them unless they are in foster care. However, there are circumstances when grandparents can go to court and obtain visitation rights.
For example, if your child is no longer in the picture and your child's spouse has prevented you from seeing the grandchildren, courts will presume that it is important for kids to know their family and may order visitation. Our lawyers can guide you through the legal steps required to obtain a visitation schedule. We also help grandparents adopt when both parents are out of the picture.
