Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Parents are divorced, I have maintain a relationship with my granddaughter for the last 5 years, her entire life I have been there. It is just recently, because I closed my wallet to my daughter, that I have been denied a relationship. My granddaughter has never resided with me, she lives with her father.
With the grandchildren residing in two separate states, even though the father of my grandson allows me visitation here in Michigan, should I file in both states? What exactly do I file and how do I contact a lawyer in Tennessee?
