There are some situations where it may be necessary for you to file for
visitation rights if you would like to preserve your relationship with
your grandchildren. This is especially true if you are the parent of a
non-custodial parent following a divorce.
If the other parent has custody of the children, then you may want to insist
on having visitation so that your relationship with the children will
not be cut off. As well, the grandparents of a deceased parent may want
to file for visitation in order to keep a relationship with the children
despite the fact that their child has passed away.
As well, if a child has been adopted by a third-party, then it may be important
to file for visitation. If you are the parent of a child that no longer
has a relationship with the children, and they have been adopted by your
child's ex-spouse and step-parent, the best way to maintain a relationship
with the child is to file for visitation rights.
If you are the parent to a non-custodial parent that is not interested
in having visitation, then you may want to secure that right for yourself.
This is because your child's disinterest in the children may jeopardize
your ability to have an impact in their lives.
