More Discussion About Grandparent Visitation

Journal Categories

The Family Law Prof Blog reports: "Many thought the U.S. Supreme Court had essentially settled this issue in 2000 when it ruled that Tommie Granville, a mother in Washington state, could limit to once a month her two girls' contact with their paternal grandparents after the girls' father had committed suicide. But the issue is flaring anew. The highest courts of Pennsylvania, Utah and Colorado recently ordered grandparent visits in disputes strikingly similar to the 2000 case." They link to a USA Today.com Yahoo news report of October 5, 2006, Court Fights Hurt Children.
We posted about these cases here. Marcia Oddi at IndianaLawBlog posted about them here.
