In Pennsylvania, child custody is determined by analyzing the best interests of the child. Sometimes, the best interest of the child requires that someone other than a parent raise the child (even on a temporary basis) in order to ensure his or her safety and comfort. This often means that the child's grandparent seeks custody of the children in order to help him or her thrive against the odds, and in spite of the parents' struggles.
