Grandparents' Rights Attorneys in Cincinnati

Helping Grandparents Maintain Relationships With Grandchildren

There is a common misconception that grandparents have no right to visitation with their grandchildren. While this is true in the cases of intact families, if the parents are divorced or separated, or one or both of the parents has passed away, it may be possible to obtain companionship rights from the court. Additionally, if the parents were never married, but are involved in the court with custody or support matters, grandparents' rights may also apply. At the law firm of Brinkman & Associates, our grandparents' rights lawyers can help you with visitation or adoption matters that concern your grandchildren.

Dedicated Representation in Custody and Visitation Matters

Our Ohio family law attorneys have extensive experience representing grandparents and helping them assert their rights. We can represent your interests if you are being prohibited from seeing your grandchildren due to:

  • Divorce
  • Parental separation
  • The death of a parent
  • The inability of the parents to care for their children

In certain cases, typically those that involve unfit parents, you may wish to seek custody or adoption of your grandchildren. This can be complicated and emotionally draining. However, when you come to the law firm of Brinkman & Associates, our lawyers will handle your matter with compassion and understanding. Even if things are not that desperate, if you have had a positive, ongoing relationship with your grandchildren in the past, we will do everything we can to persuade the court that it is in the child's best interests to grant you visitation or companionship rights.

I really appreciate the way Mrs. Brinkman handles difficult situations and difficult people.  She represents me with confidence, yet always makes sure that I know what is going on and that I fully understand my options.  Her paralegal Tamara, have also answered my questions promptly and professionally; and have helped me through some tough times.

Karen Brinkman was brilliant in court; I obtained full custody of my daughter and am extremely grateful.  She made my family, my witnesses, the other professionals, and myself very comfortable by constantly educating us and keeping us informed of the law and the legal procedures.  She deserves a lot of credit for her careful wording of motions and entries and her ability to take charge of out-of-control situations.

Karen and Tamara went into action on behalf of my son and granddaughter.  Their caring attitudes come through in everything they say and do.  I am sure that I will be looking to Brinkman & Associates for legal advice and for common sense answers whenever I have a family law question in the future.

I was very thankful that I had Mrs. Brinkman on my side when I went to court regarding a modification of child support that had been requested by my former husband in the Hamilton County, Ohio, Juvenile Court.  She returns my calls and responds to my emails promptly and thoroughly.
