Do I Have Rights to My Grandchild?
You may, but only in specific cases. In probate court, you can petition for guardianship of your grandchild(ren) if you feel as though it’s necessary. Alternatively, if your grandchild(ren) are involved in their parents’ divorce or custody matter, you could potentially intervene if you can prove that you have a parent-like relationship with your grandchild(ren).
If you file a petition in probate court, it can be a standard petition, or a request for immediate temporary custody. You can also petition to remove one or both parents as guardians, appoint yourself as a co-guardian and/or terminate the parents’ parental rights, and, ultimately, proceed forward with adoption if you want.
