The court will consider granting grandparents visitation rights in certain instances. This includes:
- When a parent has died
- When a stepparent adopts the grandchild
- When married parents are living apart
- When married parents meet other requirements
It is important to remember that the courts will try to balance the grandparent’s right to visitation with the parents’ right to make decisions for their child. If both parents do not approve of visitation, it can be difficult to secure visitation.
