Grandparent Rights in Columbus, Ohio
Grandparent Rights is becoming an increasingly popular matter of dispute in the area of Family Law. Ohio statutes give maternal or paternal grandparents the right to petition the Domestic Court for visitation with their grandchildren, but the Court has a lot of discretion as to whether or not visitation shall be granted. There is an increasingly large amount of case law coming out in this area of family law and the consensus seems to be that unless the parent or parents are deemed to be unfit to care for the children that are the matter of the visitation issue, the parent or parents can decide who their children will or won’t visit with.
