Thank you for your follow up.
Georgia, law does allow a grandparent to file a Petition for Visitation with a minor grandchild, however, such petition can only be filed once every 2 years, so if the petition is denied, then a grandparent would have to wait for 2 years before he can file for visitation again.
The grandparents' visitation rights are generally limited if granted, to several hours a week of a month, depending on the circumstances and when the court decides whether to grant the petition for visitation, the court considered the bond between the minor child and the grandparent, the overall fitness of the grandparent for visitation and the judge would make a ruling which is in the best interest of the minor child.
Pursuing petition for grandparent visitation can be legally complex and overwhelming, especially when the grandparent does not reside in the same state where the grandchild lives and where the Petition would have to be filed, so it is essential to consult and retain an experienced local GA family law attorney to represent you in your visitation proceedings, if you do decide to pursue such.
