Family Law: Rights of a Grandparent

I am a grandparent. I have just learned that my married, adult child is getting a divorce. My grandchildren are my world!! Will my child's divorce mean I will not get to see my grandchildren as much as I have in the past? Will I get to visit them if my adult child does not get custody? Do I have any rights in all this?

My Mom Needs a Power of Attorney; When Can I Pick It Up?

We often receive phone calls asking about Powers of Attorney. Powers of Attorney are extremely important documents for business and health care matters, but they need to be prepared, reviewed, and executed by the individual in front of the appropriate witnesses and notary while the individual is still competent. Additionally, as attorneys, we are required to have direct contact with the individual for whom we are preparing the Power of Attorney. Consequently, the sooner these documents can be put in place, the better, even if the need for the documents is not anticipated for years. You may also be unaware that a Business Power of Attorney is not valid until is recorded with the Register of Deeds office, which is makes it very important for the power holder and grantor of the power to coordinate where the original document is stored.

The case being presented was one dealing with many current issues facing high school students: bullying, acceptance of differences in abilities, interests, religion, and ethnicity, school safety and school discipline, and reasonable versus excessive force.
