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.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.
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 cant be just a fear), then that can also be brought to the attention of the judge.
