In Indiana, the court can grant visitation rights to a grandparent if the court determines that visitation would be in the best interests of the grandchild. However, not all grandparents are entitled to ask for grandparent visitation. A grandparent may ask the court for visitation rights with a grandchild ONLY if:
As such, this would ONLY give them standing to try and proceed but they also need to introduce evidence, over your objection, to show it is in the best interest of the children to grant it. If they can not and there are issues that are concerning or troubling for the court, it can be denied, since you, as the parent, have a right to refuse the visitation and make this decision.
