What Rights Do Grandparents Have?

Grandparents often play a big part in a child's life. Fortunately, in Ohio, grandparents can petition the court for visitation rights if conflict arises and a court determines it is in the best interests of the child.

Similar to allocating parental rights and responsibilities in a divorce, the court looks at a long list of factors when determining grandparent visitation rights.

Factors To Determine Grandparent Visitation Rights

Factors include:

  • Whether the grandparent has an interest in the welfare of the child
  • Whether the granting of the companionship or visitation rights is in the best interest of the child
