Legal Question in Family Law in North Carolina

grandparents visitation rights

We have a grandchild my current husband saw every day of his life until he divorced the child's grandmother. The child belongs to his ex-wife's daughter and his son, whom are not married but have this child together. We need to know what steps we have to take in order for him to get legal visitation rights to see this child again. He was told that is he left the child's grandmother that they would not allow him to see the child after separation and divorce and his son is afraid to ''buck'' the mother.

Re: grandparents visitation rights

Grandparents have no legal rights in visitation of their grandchildren. His son, the child's father, is his best bet. Other than that, there is little that can be done to force visitation.

Good luck
