If so, what rights? If not, why not?

Single mothers burdening their own parents with child care
No. Not unless they have been awarded legal custody, in which case there is a lot more in play.
In-laws have the right to remain silent, everything they say can and will be used against them.

I grew up with their extremely abused kids. When the kids grew up and refused to let the monsters see their own kids he went on the roll with this org. They sit as directors on a few grandparents rights counsels and even appeared on Oprah once.
if something happens to one of the parents as in the grandparents child and the other parent is trying to keep the child away from the grandparents then yes they should have a say even more so if that parent is a nut job
Yes I think they have a right to see their grandchildren if.... they are stable people....not loons... My neighbors got awarded their grandchildren for a time because their son and his wife are hoarders... and the children were suffering because of it... When they got the situation under control the courts let the children go back to their parents but the grandparents were awarded visitation rights... Every other weekend and several weeks in the summer.
