Do Siblings Have Visitation Rights?

By Sandra Bonfiglio |

Sibling visitation rights are a tricky subject because while courts emphasize that the best interests of the child is what matters most, siblings do not have constitutionally-protected parental rights (because they aren’t parents); thus, any sibling that is seeking visitation rights with other siblings against the wishes of one or both parents is a… Read More »
