KNOW YOUR GRANDPARENT RIGHTS
In some situations, the court can enforce your right to visit your grandchildren, even against the parent’s wishes. You might be able to get visitation rights if:
- Your adult child and their spouse are divorced
- Either parent was accused of child abuse
- Either parent was incarcerated or found incompetent to care for your grandchildren
- The parent-child relationship was terminated by the court
- Your grandchildren lived with you for over six months
