Grandparents do have legal rights in Ohio. This includes both custody or grandparent visitation. Grandparents can ask a court to grant them the right to continue their relationships with their grandchildren, especially in cases of divorce or unmarried parents. The Court usually will make rulings based on the well-being of the child.
On the issue of custody of the child, a grandparent may file a complaint if it can be proven that both parents are unfit. The grandparent also needs to demonstrate is that it is in the child’s best interest to be placed in the custody of the grandparent.
These cases can be extremely emotional.
