My husband and I watched our grandchildren Monday through Friday from 8a.m. until 4:30 p.m and sometimes longer for over four years. I paid for 80% of their clothing, took them to preschool, 98% of their doctors appointments, ballet lessons, paid for numerous other expenses and prepared dinner for them 3 times per week. When my son moved back to Illinois near his father, he turned on us and refused to allow us to see our grandchildren. He made false accusations against me to defame my character. He refuses to allow any e-mails, phone calls, skype or other access other than sending gifts. He is using his children as pawns to hurt us. What rights do Grandparents have in the State of Illinois?
