Grandparents' Rights Archives

Visitation rights of grandparents

Grandparents in Minnesota who have been denied access to their grandchildren may be interested to learn what rights they have. Although laws vary from state to state, every state will allow grandparents to petition the court for the right to see their grandchildren. How easily these visitation rights are granted will depend greatly on whether the state has permissive visitation statutes or restrictive visitation statutes.

When grandparents may have visitation rights

In Minnesota, when a child's parents may not be able to provide the care that they need, they may be placed into foster care or be adopted by another family. However, the child's grandparents may still wish to be in that child's life. In some cases, the grandparents may be able to seek visitation in order to remain bonded with their grandchild.

300 grandparents celebrate their right to see their grandchild

This year, Grandparents Day was held in April. It was celebrated by many, including those that attend Bethel University. The entire day was dedicated to the bond that grandparents share with their grandchildren. From the opening remarks by President Jay Barnes to the campus tours that the families walked together, the focus was on those with immeasurable life experience.
