I live in Kern county Ca., and my son's ex is refusing to let us see my grandchildren. I have never done anything but love them since the day they were born in fact I'm the one who took care of my grandson when he was a newborn so they could work. She stopped letting us see them after I called the sheriff because my grandsons rear end was covered in bruses and he said her new boyfriend did it. We had visitation, and she totally ignors the court orders and my son has given up . I want to know can I file for visitation for myself?
You need to have a face to face consultation with a family law attorney and discuss whether or not Family Code Sections 3103 and 3104 regarding grandparent visitation applies to you. If you do not meet all of the qualifications, it would be a waste of time and money and effort to proceed. But, if you do qualify, it will still be up to the discretion of the judge to grant you visitation. No one here can answer the question of whether or not you can file. There are a lot of factors that have to be considered in making this type of a request.
