Thank you for your reply.There is some reason though, the court does not do things without some reason. Furthermore, the laws do not favor grandparents since our US Supreme Court has stated that parents have a civil right to make decisions for their child and that right would not be interfered with by the court unless it is proven by clear and convincing evidence the parent is unfit. See: Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57 (2000).
So now you have been served this, you must file a motion in court to reinstate your visitation based on the fact you have had the child for 8 years and the bonding that has occurred.
