GRANDPARENTS RIGHTS: VISITATION

The information provided on the 211 eLibrary is for educational purposes only. It is not intended to be and should not be construed as legal advice.

Grandparent visitation rights often become an issue when parents divorce and the custodial parent denies grandparents the opportunity to visit their grandchildren. Although every state now has laws addressing this issue, the laws vary from state to state, and some laws have been challenged in the courts.
