Grandparents Rights

What are Grandparents Rights in Tennessee?

If a child’s parents object to visitation by a grandparent, what rights, if any, do grandparents have according to Tennessee State Law? Fortunately, grandparents do have rights in certain instances, and attorney Amanda J. Gentry is ready to defend your rights if your visitation rights have been challenged.

Grandparent visitations are not guaranteed while the child’s parents are married, and the parents have the first say in whether or not to allow a grandparent to see the child, but when the parents are divorced or legally separated, grandparents must prove that their grandchildren would be negatively affected without visitation rights. The ultimate goal of the court has always been to do what’s best for the child, so each grandparent visitation case is considered case by case.

With Amanda J. Gentry as your family law attorney, she will fight for your rights as a grandparent. As your advocate for grandparents’ visitation rights, Amanda will guide you through the complex legal process by providing the answers to your difficult questions. Amanda strives to provide experienced, affordable and reliable family legal services to Murfreesboro, Gallatin, Franklin, Lebanon, and Nashville residents.
