Can this really happen?

Grandparents can take you to court to fight for visitation and claim you are unfairly not letting them see their grandchildren? 

I'm asking because I read an article on TMZ today...yes I'm bad. Do people really do this and can this happen for normal people?

yes its mostly for the ones that had primary custody of the child then the parents take them away but others abuse it when they cross boundries and aren't allowed to see the kid

gotcha. I think it just struck a cord because I am currently not visiting or talking to my parents. They claim to want a relationship with my kids that is more than just buying them crap, but they haven't called or written or anything. So, I guess it isnt that I'm not talking to them I'm waiting for them to grow up and stop wanting to buy my children's affection and love. 

Quoting Babybear89:

Yes, that can really happen. My grandparents took my mother to court for visitation with me-and they won. So, she did what any sensible patent would do- she kidnapped me and moved across the country.

She should thank her lucky stars that I found them ten years later, and that they were still alive.

My ex husbands mother threatens to take me to court all the time. It is to my advantage that both she and her son are complete idiots and would never be able to figure out how to do it.

We don't see either of my parents, either of my husbands parents, our either of my ex husbands parents.

I heard of it happening once when the father died and the mother moved to another state and wouldn't talk to the father's parents, wouldn't let the kids see them, etc., they filed to get court ordered visitations.

Wow....at the responses....so it begs the question...do they really have a right? I get that if there are cutody issues, but isn't it to the parents disgresion? I can't imagine taking someone to court like that.
