The issue of grandparents' rights can be a contentious topic for families.

Do You Want to Visit With Your Granddaughter or Grandson?
If there is an existing divorce case, each set of grandparents has a right to be enjoined in the case. As a grandparent, you do have the right to represent yourself. However, it can be challenging to succeed on your own, and I do advise you to seek help from an experienced attorney. Here are three scenarios that may have you concerned about your rights as a grandparent:
- You feel your own child is inadequate to parent your grandchild. Your adult child may be addicted to drugs, in jail or in a home where domestic violence is present.
- Your child is deceased, causing you to want to step in to raise the grandchild.
- You are interested in obtaining legal guardianship of your grandchild. You may have guardianship now but want to obtain custody of the kids due to an unsafe or unhealthy environment, incarceration, family violence or because your child (the parent of your grandchild) has passed away.
- You are not being allowed visitation to see your grandchild, either by your own child or by his or her ex-spouse.
