Parents Resisting Grandparent Visitation  

There have been cases of parents resisting grandparent visitation. If this is happening to you, the best thing that you can do is try to talk to that parent. You have to remind the parent how important a grandparent is to a child's development, even if divorce has taken place.

Talking and negotiating is the best way forward if parents are resisting grandparent visitation. Once you talk sense into the parents, make sure you write down whatever you have agreed in a form of an agreement so that you know what you are entitled to. However, if the talking fails, do not lose hope. You will be able to go to court to get grandparents' visitation rights. All the states in the United States have laws in place that allow grandparent visitation. However, due to a ruling by the US Supreme Court in 2000, these rights may be limited. But at least you know that if parents are resisting grandparent visitation, you have various options available.

When you go to court for parents resisting grandparent visitation, you will have to prove to the court that the visit is benefitting the child. However, if you fail to prove this or the parents prove that your visit will harm the child, the court will rule in favor of the parents.

When it comes to deciding on grandparent visitation, the court takes a few factors into consideration. These factors include the relationship between the grandparent and the child; the relationship between the parents and the grandparent; the time when the child last had contact with the grandparent; the effect that the grandparent visitation will have on the child's relationship with his or her parents; any history of physical, sexual or emotional abuse by the grandparent; if the parents are divorced, what is the arrangements with regard to the child; and the fact the grandparent filed the case in good faith.

Once all the above factors are taken into consideration and the court feels that there will be no adverse effect of the grandparent's visitation, it will grant the grandparent visitation rights without infringing on the parents' right to raise their child.
