OUR THEME FOR THE MEETING
'Have there been trends or are there current trends that you have recognized & capitalized on within your chosen profession?'.
SPEAKERS HAVE THE FLOOR
Our first (and only) speaker for the meeting, was our fearless chairperson - Jerry Thomas. Jerry has dispelled to our group so much fantastic information regarding the necessities of establishing a will, family trusts, drawing up legal documents and so much more in previous discussions. When she began to speak, she divulged that she 'didn't know what to talk about'.
But worry not, Jerry would not let a legal bump in the roadway knock any of us off our game.
Jerry's discussion centered on the the visitation rights of grandparents. More precisely, what happens when a grandchild or grandchildren loses a guardian. Life is not always fair when it comes to such issues, as the other guardian (not being the grandparents son or daughter) might not be all so cooperative in permitting visitation.
So exactly how do grandparents initiate a legal request for visitation rights when they are initially rebuffed by a legal guardian? Jerry proceeded to offer important advice. In order for visitation rights to be granted to grandparents in Arizona, the child must be at least 6 months old before visitation rights may be negotiated.
The final word of advice Jerry offered was that unless grandparents are 'bad' or unsavory people (felonies, drug/sex offenders) grandparents have an absolute right to petition the courts for their visitation rights of their grandchildren.
