I raised my granddaughter for 8 years and her mother decided to take her from me and not allowing me to see or have contact with her since we do not get along because of her new boyfriend. I read this on line Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 25-409 provides that the Superior Court may grant a grandparent, reasonable visitation with a child if the judge believes that such contact would be in the child’s best interests, and any one of the following applies: (1) the child’s parents have been divorced for at least three months; (2) a parent of the child has been deceased or has been missing for at least three months; or (3) the child was born out of wedlock. will the judge order a consideration to talk to the minor.
You did some good research. Another thing to look at is the reason that you don’t have parenting time now.
There are some court cases that interpret the law you site. You should talk with a lawyer to see what are the chances of getting visitation.
I agree with Mr. Zachary that you have a good start
You would have to file a "legally-sufficient" petition with the Court to get your foot in the door to allow you to present your information to a judge. BEFORE you do that though, I would highly recommend consulting with an attorney to ensure that your case wouldn't negatively affect your daughter's position in Court.
