Join EAPO on September 8th for our Webinar on “Grandparent Rights”, presented by Andrew Feldstein, Founder of Feldstein Family Law Group.
Grandparents can and do play an important role in a child’s life. Unfortunately, the rights of grandparents are often overlooked. Despite being intimately involved in their grandchildren's lives and upbringing and often providing care, grandparents may be refused access to their grandchildren.
Advocates say an estimated 75,000 Ontario grandparents have limited or nonexistent access to their grandchildren, for reasons such as divorces, separations, or fractured relationships with their own adult children.
In recognition of Grandparent's Day - September 11th, EAPO is hosting a webinar to bring awareness of Grandparent's Rights. Join us to learn what the laws say regarding grandparents' rights for access and custody and gain insights on the court process and alternative options. These sensitive and challenging matters of grandparents’ rights from legal and emotional perspectives alike will be explored and much more.
