Grandparents can play an intricate role in families. Grandparent visitation rights are determined based upon a pre-existing relationship that has engendered a bond. If you are a grandparent and are being prohibited from exercising visitation with your grandchild with whom you have an established relationship with, then you may have rights available to you. The more involved a grandparent is with the child, the greater the likelihood that the court will find there is an engendered bond. Grandparent visitations are not granted liberally as the court will presume that fit parents can act in the child’s best interest.
