I have mediation on 10/4 for my ex's mom taking me to court for visitation.  Yes that's right...Grandparent's rights!

I do not have a lawyer.  I am hoping that it won't be too bad.

I do not mean to offend, but why is the problem if she wants to see her grandchildren? I hope she is not drug abuser or psycho ?

Quoting annabl1970:

There's a difference between grandparents seeing their grandchildren and grandparents having rights to their grandchildren.  

Except in very rare circumstances - I take STRONG STRONG exceptions to grandparents thinking they have "rights" to their grandkids.  

In my state only 2 cases of grandparents rights have ever won - both of them were cases where BM dropped child of with maternal grandparents at infancy and disappeared.  BF's came back years later, fought and won custody and then hid the child from maternal grandparents.  I don't necessarily agree with those cases - however I get it.

Just to be a bitch?  Hell No.
