Grandparent Visitation

Grandparent Visitation

A grandparent whose visitation with a minor grandchild is unreasonably denied by the child’s parent(s) may be granted court-ordered visitation if certain circumstances are present. When a grandparent seeks visitation through the courts, a number of factors set forth by Illinois law are considered. The court’s determination of whether to order grandparent visitation is a fact-specific endeavor, and is based on the combined circumstances of the child, parent(s), and grandparent(s).
