I have always heard that the only way a grandparent could demand visitation is if their child had died and the parent left behind decided that they were not going to allow them to be around the child of their deceased child.

I don't agree with it for a minute, but that is what I have always been told.

Welp my daughter has grandparents who she loves better than life!! But her biological father is a drug addict and his parents can't help him but seem to think they can and well the situation is sad but he hasnt seen her since she was tiny and never cared about her then and i have not maintained a relationship with any of his family nor do i get anything from them. I'm married know and she looks at him and calls him daddy and he says she is his daughter. She is blessed has 2 sets of grandparents and grandparents and they all love her. In this case it was the best. I had no other choice.

Just wondering how a parent could keep a grandchild away from a grandparent that they love so well. They use the kid to hurt the grandparent and don't think about how the child feels. If you say a cross word they jerk them away from you again. This is not the first time this has happened. I think that one day the parent will pay for everything that they have taken away from this child. No concious at all. Can not get along with anyone for long. That just amazes me.
My question is which of this grandchilds parents did you give birth to, the mother or the father? And also,Did you keep your child from their grandparents as you raised him/her?

Count your blessing that they are raising there kids, most grandparents are raising there gkids now days, and that a shame for a child not to be raised by there own parents, but sometimes it's best for the child not to be around there mother or father.
There is so much drug abuse going on people rather have a pill instead of there child.

If you would have raised your own kids right then they would not be keeping their kids your grandkids away from you.
there are reasons why people keep their kids away from the grandparents.

This is a thought, the raising of the kids but it's not completely the blame. In some instances there are good reasons behind people kee
ping other people away from the kids, their kids,sometimes it's drugs, violence, ways of living, way they were treated as children by the parents, living arrangement, and there are other reasons but if there isn't a good reason then it's wrong. Grandparents fill a spot that no other person can fill.

Grandparents' Rights

Louis Paz Winner
Seiller Waterman LLC
"Louisville Family Law™"
As the divorce rate increases and child custody is often split among parents, a common misconception involving grandparents' rights has arisen. Most people assume that child custody and visitation are established strictly among parents, such that grandparents have no legal stake in the matter. However, in the State of Kentucky, grandparents often have the right to reasonable visitation with their grandchildren.

Louisville family law attorney Louis P. Winner, of Seiller Waterman LLC, provides dedicated advocacy for grandparents seeking to secure their visitation rights. He understands that grandparents can impart valuable life knowledge and provide additional support during a child's formative years.

If you would like to discuss grandparents' rights, contact attorney Louis P. Winner.

What Are Grandparents' Rights?
Grandparents' rights involve grandparents asserting their legal right to visitation of a grandchild. Grandparents often choose to enforce their rights where a parent purposely prevents them from seeing their grandchild or in cases where the grandchild's wellbeing is threatened by neglect, abuse or addiction.

Grandparents' Rights to Visitation in Kentucky
In Kentucky, grandparent visitation may be granted if the court determines among other things that it is in the best interests of the child. The court will make a decision based on an examination of a number of factors, including both the age of the grandchild and the existing relationship between the grandparent and grandchild.

As your dedicated legal representative, attorney Louis P. Winner will strive to demonstrate to the court that continual contact with a grandparent is in the child's best interests. Contact us for dedicated family law representation.

I am currently raising my grandchildren for the past few years because of a exstremely bad break-up between the parents. I worked hard to keep both parents in our lives through the years because the children needed thier parents. It was rough at first, but it got better and better. The parents deeply regreted the choices they madeafter a short time. They have worked hard to get their acts together. Have made spending time with thier kids #1 priority for the past couple of years. Step by step we have all gotten to the point of now giving the children back to thier parents in a joint custody agreement. The children want and need this, it is only natural. I raised my chilren never wanted to raise my grandchildren, but I have been from love of them and thier parents as well. This has been my role though. I have done my absolute best to the best of my knowledge. I hope soon my role is to be the doting grandparent as nature intended it to be.

I would never keep my baby away from his grandparents just because they may say or do something I don't like, which they don't. Now money for gas to go over there all the time is something else and my mom lives far away, so it is hard to go see her. Lol One of my parents could punch me in the face and I would still take my boy to see them.

Well me and my child pulls together to raise her child. We have since day one. She works and I keep the baby (now 3) and on her days off (she gets 2) she spends them w/ her baby. The daddy gets her on weekends so it works out for all of us. We all take turns and get breaks. They are seperated by the way. My child pulls her own weight with making sure the child has food, her wic, and her doctors appt. & her clothing. My child has worked since she was 14. Shes paid her own way since that. Shes bought and paid for 2 vehicles and has never been in trouble(don't do drugs) and is very responsible where her life & child is concerned and believe you me shes been tested. We are very proud of her. Baby was planned also. Sounds to good to be true but it works for all of us and the baby is happy and healthy, loves and is close to all of us. If everybody pulls together it works out for the baby and you.

Thank you miss Tammi and I hope that everything gets better. It is ridiculous to keep a child away from their grandparents. I can't even imagine how you must feel. I am sorry. That baby is missing out too and that is just pitiful.

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies.~Rudolph Giuliani
