Grandparents provide unconditional love, friendship, life guidance, mentorship, childcare, and much more. In most circumstances, the grandparent-grandchild relationship is beneficial, and the fortunate grandchild benefits from it for a lifetime.
With how important grandparents are, it’s understandable why guardianship and grandparents rights in California is such a hot topic.
Sadly, in some cases, life might throw a wrench in a grandparent’s connection with their grandchild. Divorce, adoption, or the loss of a parent are all common causes of this wedge or split.
CPS (Child Protective Services) may also take the grandchild away from their parents and place them in foster care due to substance abuse on the part of the parent or other issues.
