What are Grandparents Custody Rights in Texas?

Grandparents have the legal right to see their grandchildren and to ensure they receive proper care. If a grandparent feels that the rights of a child are being denied, or that the grandchild or grandchildren are in a harmful environment, then grandparents may be able to get custody of the grandchildren.

Grandparents may also be able to petition to the court to uphold their visitation rights if they feel they are not being allowed to see their grandchildren. In more serious circumstances, grandparents or relatives can petition for managing conservatorship of the child or children.

Still, despite significant evidence that the involvement of grandparents in the lives of grandchildren is overwhelmingly beneficial, Texas child custody laws can be confusing and restrictive to grandparents fighting for custody of their grandchildren.
