What if the custodial parent denies visitation?
If a custodial parent refuses to allow grandparents to visit with their grandchildren, a grandparent can file a petition with the court in order to have visitation rights with the grandchildren established.
How will the court decide?
As with all visitation and custody matters, the court’s overriding concern is the best welfare of the child. Talk to a family law attorney who understands your concerns and who can help you prepare a petition for the court.
