I'm divorce and my ex mother in law wants to see my kids but I don't want it
Here is some information for you to review regarding grandparent visitation and rights. You can find it at the following link: http://www.courts.ca.gov/17976.htm You may want to seek the assistance of an experienced family law attorney if your ex mother-in-law proceeds through the Court. Good luck.
She won't be granted it unless there was a bond prior to the divorce. It's not a question of her wishes. (But you'll need counsel.)
All of Ms. Straus’ responses are intended as useful information, based solely upon the facts stated in the question, and are not to be relied upon as a full or complete legal opinion. They may not be what you wished to hear, they do not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Straus has been licensed to practice law in California for 33 years. Ms. Straus regrets that she does not provide follow up free advice via email. She also regrets that blunt responses may be taken as "rude" by those who wished a different opinion. Good luck.
Grandparents have the right to visit their grandchildren if the court finds that it would be in the best interest of the children to have visitation with someone who they bonded with.
