The reality of Grandparents raising their grandchildren is a growing phenomenon in Texas. According to the 2021 U.S. Census report, more than 1.5 million children across the country live exclusively with their Grandparents. In Texas, Grandparents have rights when filing a SAPCR (Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship) to gain custody and support for their grandchildren.
Texas Legal invited Attorney John Nwosu of The Law Office of John Nwosu, PLLC to discuss Grandparent Rights and SAPCR proceedings. Mr. Nwosu is located in the Dallas area. He has been practicing law in Texas for over 10 years, primarily focusing on Family and Immigration Law.
