  • I think in some states they have visitation rights but if they should not be around them then you proubly could fight it. Make sure its a good reason my children didnt have a grandpa I really wish they would have its a shame.

  • As far as I know, "grandparents" don't technically have ANY rights unless they go to court to ascertain some. Felon or not.

  • If you are talking about visitation, typically, the only time a grandparent have won visitation rights have been is their child was deceased and their DIL/SIL were denying them to see their child's child.

  • "grandparents rights" arent real! The fact is that their right isto be seperated from the mother/father. In othe words, if thier son/daughter is denied rights, they can still ask for visitation on their own, without being attached to their child! BUT if you have any reason what-so-ever that you don't want them to see the child, the court will honor that! Plus they cannot, ever take the child, or not return the chil That is kidnapping, no matter what!

  • There is no such thing as grandparent rights. The Supreme Court ruled this just a few years ago. The ONLY time grandparents can get rights is if one or both parents is deemed unable to care for the children or are dead.
