In my sons divorce degree it states below vii and viii and ix.
The divorce degree is from Pennsylvania, I live in Maryland. I always pick the kids up and take them back, the distance is only 45min to an hour depending on traffic
He in the meanwhile has a new girlfriend soon to be wife and dictates how I can spend time with my grandchildren. She herself has 2 kids the same age and insists I pick them up when I want to spend time with my grandkids. I would like to get legal advice if I do have rights and what these rights are.
• Can I insist on times to spend time with my grandkids
• Can I get a schedule drawn up
• Do I need to go to court
• What right does she have to push her kids on me
• What are my rights as a grandparent
• Do I get the kids overnightI also feel very strongly that her family is not a good influence on my grandkidsvii. The parents shall organize ways for their children to maintain his / her friendships, extracurricular activities, family bonding time, and other special interests regardless of which household they may be in. It is also suggested that toys, clothing, etc. not become matters of contention.
viii. The parents shall permit and support the children’s access to family relationships and events (reunions, birthdays, graduations, etc.). Events will be accommodated by both parties with routine periods of custody resuming immediately thereafter. Each parent shall have the option of proposing time or date variations to the other parent when special recreational options or other unexpected opportunities arise. Each parent agrees to provide to the other parent reasonable notice of proposed changes and variations to the custody schedule.
ix. It is the intention of the parents that the children be protected from individuals with poor character (including, but not limited to, individuals involved
with illegal activity, immoral or intemperate behavior or violent propensities). The parents shall, to the extent possible, avoid contact with such individuals of poor character.

You would need to petition the court in PA (where custody, etc. was decided) for grandparent rights. There's no "quick and easy" way to insist upon a visitation schedule with your grandkids. You have ZERO obligation to watch the kids of the girlfriend. As far as overnights, that would also be something you would need to petition the court for.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
