In general, a grandparent seeking full care and custody of a grandchild may file a petition for custody with the court. Because most courts prefer that children live with their parents, a grandparent's right to obtain custody is typically limited to the following situations: The child's parents are deceased. The child's parents have been deemed unfit to retain custody. The child's parents consent to grandparent custody. The child has lived with a grandparent or grandparents for a year or more. In all child custody cases, courts attempt to determine what custody arrangement is best for the child. The court may consider the child's degree of contact with a grandparent before the custody petition is filed, the child's relationship with other blood relatives, and the grandparent's age, health and financial ability to support the child. If you believe that your grandchild would have a better life with you than with his or her parents, an uphill battle may lie ahead. As a preliminary matter, grandparents must show that their age, health, and financial situation allow them to properly care for their grandchildren. A court then will weigh both the child’s best interests and the rights of the parents to control their children’s upbringing. A grandparent must have a very strong case to succeed in taking custody of a grandchild. Since your case is abetment of suicide, you can claim custody of the grandchild with the help of a family law lawyer in India.Read More
