Atlanta, GA asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Georgia

Q: how to file a motion to intervene to gain custody or at least fair visitation of my grandson from other grandparent

The other grandparents have taken my grandson from my daughter under complicated circumstances to which I was not privy too nor given the chance to intervene they are in the process of seeking custody but not allowing me to see my grandchild while they have temporary custody. I don't have any extra money during the pandemic for exorbitant fees and retainers and seek some advice to help me try to do this on my own.

A: You may be able to petition for some visitation rights, but it would require working with an attorney. Try contacting Legal Aid to see if you qualify for free legal assistance. You can also try calling the state bar to see if there is a pro bono attorney in your area.

A: Sorry, but you will not be able to do this on your own. Mr. Jordan is correct about other help.
