Elliot Heidelberger views the best interest of the child as paramount. One of the most important considerations for children is contact with their grandparents and step-siblings. In specific circumstances, if the parent with legal custody attempts to distance their child from the grandparent, it may be possible to petition for a court order to ensure that you will have scheduled visitation.

It is not an unlimited right, however, and it is important to discuss your case with an attorney. There are a series of conditions that must be met, but the rights may be able to be asserted in the case of a divorce, incarceration, and illegitimacy. Establishing paternity may also necessary as part of the process, in some cases.

Elliot Heidelberger has also arranged adoptions and guardianships for both grandparents and other relatives. He has also assisted juveniles in the termination of parental rights.
