Guardianship Attorneys in Vancouver

Providing Caring & Capable Representation for 20+ Years

At the law firm of Beaty Hatch PC, we help grandparents, stepparents, and other relatives with non-parental custody issues. With more than two decades of experience, we offer skilled representation and guidance to family members seeking custody of a minor. We will work with you to help you understand your custody and visitation options as well as provide knowledgeable advocacy throughout your case.

The process of obtaining custody is complex. We can help you navigate the system. To learn more about non-parental custody and how we can help you, call our Vancouver guardianship attorneys at (360) 566-6966.

Seeking Custody as a Grandparent or Non-Parent

A non-parent, such as a grandparent or other relative, has the right to seek custody if a child is not living with one of his or her parents or if neither of the parents is a suitable custodian for the child.

This could include situations where:

  • The parents abuse or molest the child.
  • The child already lives with a non-parent.
  • The parents have substance or alcohol abuse issues.
  • Living with the parents creates an unstable environment for the child.

If you believe that the parents are not suitable custodians, we can guide you through the custody process and work with you to seek custody.

In cases of abuse, either sexual or physical in nature, it is important for you to contact the authorities immediately to protect the child. In these cases, our lawyers can help you pursue a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction while we work to secure custody.

Child Support Issues

If you gain custody of your grandchild or stepchild, you may be entitled to child support. We can help you understand the child support guidelines and how they might impact your case.
