The best course of action for grandparents to take when their children are getting divorced, is to be a peace keeper. Refrain from encouraging your child to hire the biggest shark in town. Believe it or not, very little good will come from escalating the emotional tension. Rather a good choice would be to suggest collaborative law, whereby the goal of the parties and their counsel is to resolve the matter outside of Court.
There is almost nothing to fight about if both sides are honest. As for custody, in the collaborative setting the parties, counsel and a child development specialist can sit down and develop a custodial plan that is best for the children and the parents. This is a far better solution when parents cannot agree on custody than proceeding to Court. This will also put more money in the parties' pockets rather than spending their funds on attorney fees and costs.
