Grandparents’ Rights In Tennessee
The bond between a grandparent and a grandchild is a precious one. When a child’s parents are in the midst of a divorce or domestic dispute, grandparents can often be forgotten. Depending on the outcome of the child custody case, a grandparent may be pushed out of the picture. If you have a thriving relationship with your grandchildren, you may have options to ensure that you are not eliminated from their lives.
About The Tennessee Code
If you are a grandparent, you can request visitation with your grandkids according to T.C.A. §36-6-301. Grandparents have the right to request visitation, and the judge has the authority to grant this request based on whether the visitation is in the child’s best interests, among other factors.
