Would they ever have the right to get visitation rights to my grandson who is now 3 years old
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Under Ohio law, a court can award visitation rights to a grandparent

during or after a domestic relations proceeding if the grandparent has an

interest in the welfare of the child and visitation is in the best interest of the

child. A court can also award visitation rights to a grandparent if a parent

is deceased or the child’s mother was unmarried when the child was born.

Before awarding grandparent visitation rights in Ohio, a court must consider

all relevant factors, including all factors listed in statute.

Ohio has authorized grandparent companionship or visitation rights by statute

in three circumstances: (1) when married parents terminate their marriage

or separate, (2) when a parent of a child is deceased, and (3) when the child

is born to an unmarried woman. In such cases, a court may order reasonable

visitation if it is in the best interest of the child.

So yes here it is possible they could file and seek it through the courts.

Thanks again and the best here.
