What rights do you have to visit grandchildren after divorce?

Grandparents play an important role in the lives of children across Mississippi. The relationship they have with their grandchildren is an integral one in many kids' lives, as they provide advice, guidance, love and stability that a child cherishes. When the parents of the children divorce, it can end up impacting their relationship and leave a large hole in the lives of kids already struggling emotionally to come to terms with the end of their parents' marriage.

The basics of child support modification in Mississippi

When a Mississippi couple with children divorces or separates, one of the parents often will pay child support to the other. In setting the amount to be paid, the court will take into account each parent's income, as well as the financial needs of the children. Once this amount is set, the paying spouse is to make payments to the recipient spouse for as long as legally necessary.
