This research guide includes information on:

  • Texas statutes governing grandparents' rights in child custody issues
  • "Plain English" summaries of grandparents' rights
  • Information from the Attorney General on visitation laws for grandparents
  • Texas Kincare Primer, a resource for relative caregivers
  • Hotlines and organizations assisting with family law issues
