If you are a grandparent, it is normal for you to want to spend regular time with your grandchildren and to make sure they are safe. If you are afraid that your relationship with them may be compromised because of a divorce, separation or other problems that your children are experiencing, or if you are concerned about the well-being of your grandchildren, you may want to consult an attorney about what legal rights you may have. Since Virginia law does not put you on equal footing with the natural parents, having skilled legal representation may enable you to reach your goals.
