                Under New York law, grandparents may petition the court for visitation with their grandchildren. There are two circumstances in which a grandparent may be awarded visitation with their grandchild:

  1.  The grandparent’s child (or the grandchild’s parent) is deceased.
  2. The grandparent can show that “circumstances show that conditions exist which equity would see fit to intervene.”  What does this mean?  This simply means that the grandparents who are seeking visitation must show that there is an existing relationship between the grandparents and the child(ren).   This is not terribly hard to prove.

         Therefore, if you are a grandparent and have been denied visitation with your grandchild(ren) for whatever reason, do not fear.  Simply hire a family lawyer and petition the court for visitation.  You have a strong chance of success.  Click here for Albany child custody lawyers:
