Question asked on Oct. 28, 2019
Q: It’s complicated but my son has gone “off the rails” and his wife won’t stand up to him.
A: These maters are always “complicated,” which is why no email response is ever quite adequate, and the questions are never “simple.” In short, per the U.S. Supreme Court, fit parents have the right to determine with whom their children associate — including grandparents. That said, there is a statute relating to grandparental visitation, with its own restrictions and rules, which is explained to some extent here. For a better explanation of the circumstances, risks, and options in your particular case, you should seek a consultation appointment with a qualified family law specialist to go over all of your specific facts.
