Recently, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rendered a decision that will significantly impact grandparents attempting to obtain custody of their grandchildren during a marital separation.
Becoming a grandparent can completely change a person’s outlook on life. These little bundles of joy can make even the roughest and toughest personality soft and loving. Grandparents often go out of their way, bending over backward, to spoil their grandchildren rotten, and along the way, they create a strong and lasting bond. Unfortunately, there are circumstances that may cause these relationships to become fractured.
In most households, children are raised by one or two parents. Divorces, remarriages, job transfers, and all kinds of other situations can complicate things, but direct parents are usually the ones who take care of kids.
