New Hampshire Grandparent’s Rights

Grandparent Rights to Visitation: Visitation may be granted if there is or has been a proceeding under Chapter 458 (for example for divorce or separation) or if one of the parents is deceased or has had his parental rights terminated, and if the visitation is in the best interest of the child. The best interest is to be determined by using the factors set out in the statute. Chapter 458, Section 458:17-d (N.H.R.S.A. 458:17-d).

When Adoption Occurs: All rights terminate.

Child Custody Statutes: Factors: (1) preference of child; and (2) any domestic violence. In divorce cases, joint custody is presumed in child’s best interest, unless abuse is shown. Decree must state reasons if joint custody is not ordered. N.H.R.S.A. 458:17
