Grandparents have a right to see the children in very limited circumstances. Texas actually has specific sections of the Family Code that address the issues related to grandparents’ rights. Some of the situations when a grandparent can have visitation rights are, when one parent is deceased, one parent is incarcerated, or a grandparent has had actual, exclusive possession of their grandchild for at least six months. If you are a grandparent seeking the right to see your grandchildren I recommend you schedule an initial consultation immediately, since a grandparent’s ability to have visitation rights is so limited and fact intensive.
