Grandfather obtaining custodial rights for his granddaughter.
The grandfather will need to file for guardianship in the probate court. If he goes to the courthouse, he will be given a packet of forms. Both parents will need to be given notice. It's ultimately up to the judge to decide whether the guardianship is in the child's best interest.
