Since your son has joint custody he now has sole custody. If the grandparents are seeking custody they are fighting a losing battle. In NY they have a statutory right to seek visitation since their daughter died but they will not get custody. This will just be a inconvinence for your son to have to fight this but he should win the custody issue without any problem.
