Understanding Your Case
Grandparents should understand their rights under current domestic relations laws. Grandparents have the right to request visitation rights from the court to visit their grandchildren.
Grandparents need to show the court through evidence that the child’s welfare or health will be harmed and it is in the child’s best interests to allow the grandparents to visit them. In cases where the grandparent’s child (child’s parent) is deceased, incapacitated or incarcerated, grandparents only need to prove that visitation rights are in the best interests of the child.
