I WAS GIVEN 1 VISIT ONLY. BUT SOCIAL WORKER SAID NO MORE VISITS DUE TO THE BIO PARENTS DIDNT WANT ME TO SEE THEM.BECAUSE THEY THINK IM THE ONE THAT REPORTED THEM TO CPS INITIALLY. MY GRANDSON IS THE BIO FATHER. WHICH I HAVE RAISED HIM HALF OF HIS LIFE. I CURRENTLY HAVE LEGALGUARDIANSHIP OF HIS SISTER FOR 6 YEARS. I MISS MY 4 GREAT GRANDAUGHTERS AND WANT TO SEE THEM. PLEASE HELP ME.
You could eventually file for grandparent's rights once the CPS case is closed. Alternatively, you could work out your differences with the bio parents (if possible).
Although you could ask the court for parenting time, it would useless. The US Supreme Court decided that although a trial judge has the right to order parenting time to anyone, where BOTH biological parents are against parenting time by that person, the trial judge must make "great deference" to the bio parents wishes. As a result, I have never heard of a case where a trial judge granted grandparent visitation where both bio parents object to it. You had better try reconciling with bio parents or accept you cannot see your grandchild for now and try to contact your grandchild when he/she is an adult. This is not what you want to hear but I am not helping you if I do not tell you the truth.
