Legal Question in Family Law in Louisiana

grandparents visitation rihts

I am seeking advise on grandparents visitation rights. My situation is that my daughter and son-in- law are divorced. He has legal custody of my granddaughter. My daugher is currently in prison for 3 yrs. My ex-son-in-law is not allowing me to see my granddaughter. I at once had temporary custody of this child - for 6 months - which they both signed over to me. I have been taking an active rule in this childs life since she was born - she is now 5 yrs. I would like to know if I have any legal rights to see my grand-daughter. I feel that this is a disadvantage for the child - for the fact she has stayed me for most of her life.

Any help or advise you can give me, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: grandparents visitation rihts

Issue is BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD....the court believes in keeping the extended family together. If your son-in-law won't let you visit, then you will have to file a rule for visitation.
