Best Interests of the Child

In California, the courts will make a decision primarily based upon the relationship the grandparents have had with the grandchild.

Some of the factors considered include the following:

  • Have the grandparents provided support?
  • Have they tried to maintain a relationship with the grandchild?
  • Has the child been spending a considerable amount of time with the grandparents?

The one standard that is the most important in the case is the best interests of the child. The court will always fall back on this standard in every case. Sometimes, the situation may be dire, such as if drugs, alcohol or abuse are involved. If the child is endangered or in an unstable environment, grandparents can seek guardianship over the child.

Grandparent Adoption in California

If the parent of the child is deceased or the parent of the child has been deemed unfit, adoption is a possibility. Generally, in grandparent adoptions, the process and homes studies move quickly.
