In Pennsylvania, child custody is determined by analyzing the Best Interests of the Children. Sometimes, the Best Interests of the children require that someone other than a parent raise the children, even on a temporary basis, in order to ensure the safety and comfort of the children. This often means that the child’s grandparent seeks custody of the children in order to help them thrive, against the odds, and in spite of the child’s parents’ struggles.
