Long story short, i have 2 kids, my mother took me to court last year for grandparental visitations for one child but not the other. She is getting court ordered visitation for my one child and i let her see the other whenever she wants. Now she is taking me back to court for court ordered visitations for the oldest. Even though she refused this last year, can the judge still give them to her?
There is not enough info to give you a clear and concise answer, your best course of action contact a local attorney, either by email or phone, who will protect you and your rights.
The best way to do this is by clicking on the find a lawyer tab on AVVO. Then find one that will offer a free consultation. This benefits you in two way, first and foremost you need to find an attorney who fits well with you and secondly to make sure that they are skilled enough to take on your case. The best case scenario is that you get your questions answered and you get a powerful attorney to help you if you need one.
There has actually been a fairly recent change in the law regarding grandparents' visitation rights that makes it somewhat more difficult for the grandparent to establish visitation over a parent's objection. I would strongly suggest that you contact a local attorney to determine the likelihood that your judge will grant your mother court-ordered time with the second child. To answer your question, yes, the judge still has the ability to order that your mother be permitted to have visits, but whether or not the judge actually will order visits depends on the specific facts in your case. This is why it is very important that you contact local counsel to determine how you should proceed.
