1. Mother has no vehicle and lives far from paternal grandparents.
2. Paternal grandparents have transportation and have been in the mother's city on many occasions, but chose not to request to see the grandchild.
3. Paternal grandparents are telling other relatives that the mother is keeping the grandchild from them, and the relatives are sending letters to the mother saying that the grandparents have a right to see the grandchild (at the grandparents house).The letters go on to say that the mother is depriving the child of a relationship with her grandparents and extended family (paternal side of the family).
The mother is feeling bullied, and doesn't know what to do. Her family lives 3000 miles away.
The baby's father (the grandparent's son) is siding with the mother, yet feels like he should stay out of it, feeling that he's "in the middle".
** Mother is not married to the baby's father.

If the child's father agrees with the mother of his child, he needs to step in between and take care of the problem. It's HIS family, HIS responsibility. By stepping aside, it just puts the mother in the position of being the bad guy, and that's not fair. If things were the other way around, wouldn't he expect her to deal with her own family?

"and the relatives are sending letters to the mother saying that the grandparents have a right to see the grandchild (at the grandparents house)"
send all those relative a letter back saying that you are happy to let them see the baby but that you do not have a car and you can not WALK to the grandparents house... tell them if they want to see the baby they need to drive to the baby's house to have their visit. Ask for volunteers to loan you a car if the Grandparents won't drive to your house. See how many of them will offer up a car, or just shut up about it.
Put the ball back in their court.... (its kinda like -put up or shut up)
