Grandparent and Non-parental Custody/Visitation Rights
In Utah, individuals who have forged a parent-like bond and relationship with a child may be entitled to custody or visitation rights. However, these types of cases involve specific legal requirements and mandate higher standards of evidence by a court so as to avoid undue interference with parental rights. Grandparents, aunts or uncles, and sometimes those not related by blood, such as step-parents, typically seek these rights. The family law attorneys at Dexter & Dexter are capable of assisting you in understanding your potential custody and visitation rights with regard to a child, and effectively navigating you through the court process.
