Do grandparents have rights...

Do grandparents have rights if one of the parents will not allow them to see the children

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have they taken? Have they filed any papers in family court?

No not yet. We didn't know if we had any rights to start proceeding.

I am sorry to hear this.

Is your son not going to allow you to see the children?

How old are they?
