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.
