There are few bonds as strong as grandparent and grandchild. The love you feel for the next generation of your family is hard to put into words. So it is especially scary when someone or something threatens your access to your grandchild.

Grandparents have rights in Pennsylvania. Depending on the specifics of the situation, a grandparent may be able to petition the court for visitation, partial, or even full custody of their grandchild. 

It is never easy to know that you may have to fight for your relationship with your grandchild. But if you are a grandparent in Allegheny, Westmoreland, Beaver, Butler, or Washington county, Ruppert Law Firm LLC is here to help. 


We will make sure that your rights are protected, and that the best interests of your grandchild are served by allowing you to be in their life, in whatever role that makes sense for your family.
