Grandparents' Visitation Rights

Full Video Transcript

While parents still have the primary rights to determine how their children will be raised, grandparents also have important rights. One of the most debated issues is whether or not grandparents have the right to visitation with their grandchildren. Unfortunately, when family relations are soured, many grandparents find themselves at the mercy of the parents about whether or not they are able to see their grandchildren. The good news is that grandparents are increasingly being granted legal visitation rights with their grandchildren. The rights of grandparents to visit with their grandchildren differ widely according to state law, and a court hearing may be required. Similar to child custody and visitation disputes between parents, grandparents visitation rights also tend to be decided in court according to what is in the best interest of the child.
