The court gives parents the legal right to determine who their child visits. Parents do not have to allow grandparents visitation rights. Only during a divorce, separation, annulment, paternity, or other specific cases does a grandparent have the right to request visitation from the court. The court values the rights of parents to make decisions for their children.
If a grandparent seeks visitation, the parents may object. The parents often have the upper hand in these types of cases. We work with grandparents seeking visitation and parents objecting to grandparent visitation.
