Grandparents ask Michigan Supreme Court for visitation rights

For the emotional and psychological growth of children, it is important for them to have contact with extended family members such as cousins, uncles, aunts, and grandparents. Such interactions teach a child the value of family, and generally are beneficial. However, when differences between parents arise, one parent sometimes refuses to let his or her parents in law have any contact with the children.

Even though the definition of family is ever-evolving, most families are comprised of uncles, aunts, cousins and grandparents. Generally, having contact with extended family members is good for the emotional and psychological well-being of a child. However, in some cases, due to some dispute between parents and grandparents, the parents may not want their child to have any contact with their grandparents.

Grandparents struggle for visitation with grandchildren

Families are dynamic and typically made up of grandparents, in-laws, uncles, aunts, cousins children and grandchildren. But sometimes, due to irreconcilable differences, a family may break up or a couple's marriage may end in divorce. When children are involved, child custody and visitation issues may dominate the dissolution proceedings. But the role of grandparents and their entitlements to visitation with their grandchildren is a whole different matter.
