As of July 1st, 2011, Grandparents DO have rights in Tennessee. Time for the courts to start recognizing them!

SADLY; No 'LAW' can force a vindictive parent to
HONOR their child's need for the LOVE of Extended family by communication!

At one time I was the Administrator of a Mental Hospital with a ward for Druggies- Two locked doors to enter; and a staff of 'dedicated' care takers DID NOT keep the druggies from getting HIGH!
Even if a Lawyer moved in with the Vindictive parent the Lawyer could not prevent the 'VINDICTIVE' parent from being Vindictive!

All that may be true, but it is on the record. Grandparents do have rights even if the child is in foster care. TN Codes 36-6-302 36-6-306 and 36-6-307. The law has to abide by them. So grandparents, fight for your rights. :)

ABSOLUTELY! We have NO argument - The Law is a great first step!
For far TOO long loving grandparents have suffered along with their grandchildren from Vindictive angry parents who focus their attention on hurting their EX-spouses INSTEAD of the rightful heritage of their own little ones!

I was recently in court and heard Judge Cotton say Grandparents do not have rights in the state of Tennessee.
Grandparents are a vital role in the life of grandchildren just as parents are a vital role in the life of children. These new laws made into effect need to be copied and posted on the bench for eacha nd every judge in the state.

Grandparent rights are a hotly debated subject in courts all over the United States. Although most states have passed laws favoring parents over grandparents, many still have allowances for visitation and custody. In Tennessee, there are specific statutes in sections 36-6-306 and 36-6-307 giving the court the option to grant visitation to grandparents.

While most grandparents are great (like mine and my daughters) some do not need to be around the children. It should ultimately be up to the parents, not the courts.

I am sorry, but I have to disagree. The most of the people close to me in this area, the grandparents are taking care of the children anyway. The first time you tell their parent no about something, they grab up the grandkids and take them her and there to stay. I know many grandparents that just keep their mouth shut. Just to take care of the kids.

Grandparents do have rights and they are fighting to make sure they are enforced. Our judicial system is messed up. People get rewarded for doing wrong and punished for playing by the rules.
That is why many Grandparents have stepped up to fight for these babies that we all love so much. Most of them do not want to take the children from the parents, they just want the parents to clean up or straighten up their act and be good LOVING parents. In extreme cases, the Grandparents are willing to step up to the plate until the parent gets their act together, and that is a good thing. At least the children are with loving family.
Children deserve to have a loving, caring, stable home. They deserve to have a childhood of wonderful memories, not fear and despair. "Children are a precious gift from God." Treat them as such. They are not your slave, your punching bag, or your frustration release board. They are part of you. A GIFT OF GOD!

Jesus loves the little childen...all the children of the world.

I called the courts and they told me they did not force it just like they don't force fathers to have vistitation unless we hire a lawyer and they all wanted 3000-5000 dollars. I just don't see how somebody could keep a child away from someone that loves that child more than life.
