THIRD PARTY AND GRANDPARENT CUSTODY:
Child custody issues can go beyond simply parents and may involve grandparents, family members, or other care-givers for a child. When there is a non-parent care-giver for a child, the legal issues become complex and take on a constitutional dimension due to the substantive due process rights possessed by parents and protected by the Court. Accordingly, any time custody or visitation is granted to someone other than the biological parents of a child, there are complex legal issues at play.
