Grandparent Rights to Visitation

Advice If You’ve Lost Access to Your Grandchildren

When it comes to divorce, the rights and interests of grandparents can be lost or ignored by the separating parents and by the courts. In recent decades, states have been working to reverse that trend, believing that an ongoing relationship with grandparents is in the child's best interests. The state of Ohio has maintained a process through which grandparents can enforce their visitation rights to their grandchildren.

How Can a Lawyer Help Me?

In the State of Ohio, the biological parents will always have rights to their children. Unless the parents have major issues with drug, alcohol, or a criminal history, the courts may not favor a grandparent over a parent.

According to Ohio law, court-ordered visitation can be obtained if:

  • The parents of your grandchildren are divorced or going through a divorce
  • The parents of your grandchildren are unmarried
  • A parent of your grandchild is deceased
