Family ties are very important and even sacred concept for every social unit. Grandparents play a huge role in the life of every child. They as the second parents help the child to grow and form his views of the world and reality, love kids and surround them with care. They also tend to spend more time with their grandchildren.

Nevertheless, sometimes there are situations when elderly people need legal support. Many grandparents want to meet with children, helping grandchild grow, have grandchild custody or guardianship, adopt children, etc. There are times when parents do not allow children to see their relatives, although they have every right to do it. In such cases, the lawyers of Oklahoma are finding out, whether grandparents' participation in the court process can take place, collect the necessary information that the child has an active relationship with the grandparents, and the court finds all of the rights of older people to spend time with the kids. Oklahoma foster care law also allows older people to be foster parents if they are able to give the child care and attention and create a family that the baby needs so much.Grandparents may also ask for the grandchild guardianship act in cases where the parents are unable to provide the child with the necessary resources for his or her upbringing and cannot provide the required care.

Many experts believe that the elderly person is not able to give the child what he can get from parents or those people who are not in old age. That's not true at all. Only elderly people have wisdom and serenity that the previous generation lacks. They can also surround a little person with care, love and affection, which are necessary for children during their formation and growth.
