I am not sure I entirely understand all of your question.
But if you have custody, it is your decision until a court modifies the existing court order (giving you custody).
Just because the grandparent got a lawyer does not change the custody arrangements.
They will have to prove that there has been a change of MATERIAL (significant) circumstances since the last time the court issued an order.
That can sometimes be difficult to convince a court to reopen the existing custody arrangements.
If you think it is best for her to be with you, you can make that decision because you have custody
