Is there a grandparents’ law that provides me with legal visitation rights to see my grandchildren?

My son’s ex-wife won full custody of their children and is trying to deny me the right to see the kids. Is there a grandparents’ law that provides me with legal visitation rights?

Recent changes in the law now make it a bit harder for grandparents to obtain court-    ordered visitation rights. However, it will be well worth your while to fully meet the legal burden of proving that it’s in your grandchild’s best interests to keep seeing you regularly.

Be prepared to show how much time you and the child (or children) have spent together in the past and whether you often visited during past holidays and to celebrate family birthdays and other special events.     If your son’s ex-wife keeps refusing to provide you with regular contact with the children, you might want to hire a family law attorney. Until you can make any inroads regarding legal visitation, try working closely with your son so you can share some of his allotted time with the kids.
