Grandparent Rights have been evolving, and Lisa M. Sims helps grandparents in Springfield, MO and surrounding areas.
As a grandparent –
Have you ever wondered if you have rights to spend quality time with your grandchild?
Do you have a grandchild in foster care and you do not know what to do?
Does your grandchild live with you and the school or doctor is asking for “paperwork”?
Is your child in a custody case and you’ve now been kept from seeing your grandchild?
Has your grandchild(ren) lived with you and now the parents threaten to take them back?
Many of our clients have these same questions along with many more questions concerning their grandchildren. We can help answer all of these questions and more.
Lisa M. Sims helps grandparents in Juvenile Court regarding custody, visitation, and explaining the procedure when children come in to foster care. She also helps grand parents in Probate Court regarding Guardianships of minor children when then parents cannot care for the children at that time. Also, Lisa M. Sims helps grandparents in Family Court cases regarding custody and visitation.
Because a child is involved, there is always a possibility for the Court to appoint a Guardian ad Litem (attorney) for the child to represent the child’s best interest. Due to abuse and/or neglect often being alleged it is common to see them appointed in Grandparent Rights cases.
