Can grandparents receive visitation rights in New York?

Child custody and visitation disputes can arise in all different sorts of contexts. When one thinks of such disputes, one probably thinks of battles between recently divorced or separated parents.

Settlement reached in celebrity same-sex divorce

New York is one of the states in which same-sex marriages and same-sex divorces are legal.

Such issues are sometimes dealt with through settlements. What terms a divorce settlement ultimately ends up containing can have substantial effects on both of the parties in a divorce. Thus, having experienced representation can be important in same-sex divorce settlement negotiations.
