Grandparenting time is also determined based on the best interests of the child. Based on the 2004 amendment, grandparents could seek grandparenting time based on certain factors. For example, if the child’s parent of who is the grandparent’s child is deceased or if the child’s parents are divorced, grandparenting time is likely to be approved. In a case where parents refute grandparenting time, the court would have to prove that this denial of grandparenting time affects a child’s mental, physical or emotional health in order for the refutation to be denied. In cases where step-parent have adopted the child, the process of acquiring grandparenting time is a little different. Grandparenting time is strictly given only to grandparents whose child is deceased.
