Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter.

Yes, W VA law does permit the Grandparent visitation rights. And you can read that law at this LINK I suggest that you can check with the clerk of the court in the county where your grandson lives - because that is where it needs to be filed - and ask the clerk for the packet of documents to file, pro se - without a local attorney - so you can request grandparent visitation.

I suggest, if the clerk does not have those forms and you want to continue without a local attorney you can ask the clerk to make copies of the documents from a similar file where the grandparents filed and were awarded the visits.
