Has any one ever had any luck with a step parent being granted visitation by a court?

I am just considering something like this.

Can I ask why you think you should be able to over rule the parents decision?

why do you think you should be able to over ride the parents decision?

Why would you think you should get visitation?

I haven't heard of it happening or even of anyone who has tried.

I've not heard of it in the event of a divorce, but I have in the event of a bio-parent's death.

You will almost certainly lose. You're not legally related to the child. That would be like a neighbor seeking visitation of the family next door's child.

I doubt she necessarily thinks she should get it.  I'm sure it's more that she loves her SK and still wants to see them, so she just wants to know if it's ever happened and what the situation was.

Obviously she thinks should otherwise why would she be considering it?

Is the father dead, or are you divorced from him?
