What can you tell me about grandparent's visitation rights?

At this time, it's very difficult to give a definitive answer to this question.

Currently, grandparent's visitation rights are still uncertain. Various courts have ruled in a variety of ways, most of them contradictory. If the grandparents are determined to gain some sort visitation and have the legal and financial resources to press the issue, they will usually get some consideration from the court. This is by no means a 'sure thing'- the courts are still in flux over the visitation rights, if any, that grandparents have. Some courts have ruled that grandparents essentially have no rights to visitation, but other courts have done the opposite and ruled in favor of grandparents, granting them limited visitation.
