Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
I am very sorry to say that in WA there are effectively no grandparents or great grandparents rights. The seminal case by the US Supreme Court came out of WA and it crushed the rights of grandparents to seek rights to have visitation with their grandchildren or great grandchildren by stating that the right of the parent to decide the best interests of their children is a "fundamental right" meaning it was a basic human right, that would not be interfered with by the courts unless the parents were proven to be unfit. See: TROXEL V
. GRANVILLE 530 U.S. 57
(2000); 137 Wash. 2d 1, 969 P.2d 21, affirmed.
Thus, I am afraid that legally if the parents will not let the grandparents or great grandparents see the child, there is nothing in the WA law that can be used to make them do so. The only thing you can do I am afraid is remain there for him and not be critical of him or his family until he eventually realizes that you love him and have not been trying to hurt him. But if you are looking for the law to help you, I am afraid the US Supreme Court put an end to that type of help.
If he rejects counseling or even his pastor, I am afraid he is of the age he can do so (of course he is also of the age where nobody knows anything and he knows everything) and all you can do is just remain supportive and hope he comes back around, most times they do unless they are pressured and humiliated to the point that they turn their backs completely.
