Grandparent Rights

At times, the biological parent of a child can be unable, or even unfit, to provide safe and nurturing care for their child. In cases such as these, our firm can help provide the child’s grandparents with legal assistance in gaining rights of care on a temporary or even permanent basis.

Grandparents have the right to visit with their grandchildren in the event that the parent is otherwise not in the picture (dead, military, jail, etc.) Earl's number one service is grandparent visitation.

Grandparent Guardianship

Looking to have legal rights to your grandchild? Want to be able to have a say in their medical care or their education? Our law firm can provide help in obtaining guardianship. This can help the biological parent in many ways, from allowing other caregivers to step in when needed to providing a safe environment for the child either temporarily or permanently.

Grandparent Adoption

In instances when a biological parent is unable or unfit to provide a nurturing environment for a child, adoption of the child by the grandparents can be the answer. We can help you through the process of adopting your grandchild so that you can assume custody and responsibility.

Child Support & Custody

In cases of divorce or for unmarried parents of children, the issues of child support and child custody require decisive legal representation. We understand that caring for a child requires more than attention and love. It is a great expense to provide adequate shelter, food, clothing, and education for a child. McCoy Law can help get child support payments organized and get the income you need to provide financial support for your child. When circumstances change, we can also help in modifying your child support order to match.

When dealing with child custody issues, negotiations can often become heated or unpleasant. That is why you need an attorney who can provide you with diligent representation. We can handle any investigation and research required, including reviewing the following factors:

  • Time spent with child(ren)
  • Activities involved in with child(ren)
  • Existence of detrimental or negative attitudes or behaviors
  • Work arrangements and schedules
  • And other parental factors

Our in-depth process helps ensure that arrangements are made swiftly and fairly, so that everyone can return to their lives, including and especially the child or children. Whether you are seeking to petition for full custody, for residence rights, or to negotiate for access and visitation, McCoy Law can help.




Adoption is a complicated and lengthy process and requires a knowledgeable attorney to help you navigate all of the challenges. Our firm can help you begin adoption proceedings and support you throughout the adoption process, providing legal counsel and effective character representation. We can help with infant adoption, foster care adoption, stepparent adoption, grandparent adoptions, and other unique situations.

Step-Parent Adoption

When families become blended through marriages with prior children, step-parents often would like to become the legal parent of their spouse’s child or children. McCoy Law can help you understand the requirements for step-parent adoption and can walk you through the legal process. In certain situations, consent from the other biological or legal parent is not required. Talk to our office for more and to schedule a consultation.

Foster Care Adoption

This is perhaps the first option that comes to mind when talking about adoption. If you are already a foster parent and are seeking to adopt your foster child, our law firm can help you through the process. If you are seeking to adopt a child from a foster care home, we can aid you in understanding the process and making the arrangements.

Grandparent Adoption

In instances when a biological parent is unable or unfit to provide a nurturing environment for a child, adoption of the child by the grandparents can be the answer. We can help you through the process of adopting your grandchild so that you can assume custody and responsibility.
