my two month old daughters paternal grandparents are threatening me with grandparent rights. they say they dont see her enough even though i bring her there at least three times a month. they have never once called to see hows shes doing or came to my home to visit her. i am a stay at home mom while her father works 12 hr shifts. we barely have time to do anything let alone drive 40 miles to see them all the time. is there anything i can do to stop this because it is putting way too much stress on her father and i. and if there isnt what is the most the court would give them. they are not safe for my daughter to be around alone. can someone please help me out.
Read the law posted above. They can go to court seeking visitation, but it must be the court in the same county the child lives in (so you won't have to travel far) and if you are already allowing visitation 2 or 3 times per month, they would have to show good cause why they should have more visitation than that.

The judge will certainly take into consideration that: 1) father works 12 hour shifts; 2) you already allow them 2 or 3 visits per month; and 3) the 40 mile drive you always make to give them visitation. Those facts will greatly be in your favor.

You say that they are not safe for your daughter to be around alone. If you have valid reasons for saying that (it can’t be just a fear), then that can also be brought to the attention of the judge.

Grandparents do have rights in NUS.. I myself was taken to court which was drawn out over a year by my children's grandparent and the judged gave a couple hours once a month. Was not my choice, I actually showed proof how that pesos had dropped out of their life for over a year and never tried contact, see how the kids where, bday card, xmas card, and so on but still granted visitation

Can someone inform me on grandparents rights in nys if it is not in the best interest of the child? I'm currently in a disagreement with my sons fathers mother and she has disrespected me several times, participates in illegal activity and all 3 of her kids have been to jail/prison. I do not want my son to be raised around this nonsense I want him to have a fair chance at life and im afraid if he is around her then she will pass her horrible values onto him :( I just want the best for my son.

There are grandparents right is nys my ex husband's mother took me and my ex husband to court after we stopped allowing her to see them because of inappropriate things that happened and the kids are terrified of her but the judge refuses to listen to the kids who have repeatedly told everyone that they don't want to go and cry because the judge forces them and then it gives them nightmares

I still have to disagree with you. My brother and his wife are going thru this as we speak. They have petitioned the court for vistitation. They have a court date scheduled to hear all sides of the visitation issue. The mother, the father, and the grandparents (my brother and sister in law). There is standing for visitation in NYS. If there wasn't they wouldn't have gotten a court date.
No matter how ridiculous the petition is a court has to hear it. They have to give each petition weight.

My son has 2 children with his ex-girlfriend. She is made at him and now will no longer allow me to see my grandsons. Is this legal?
Why can't your son bring them to see you when they are with him?
