Call your local D.A. or family court judge and they should be able to provide you with some answers.

We just went through this...all the best. has lots of great information. There is also a wonderful book called "Grandparents' rights : your legal guide to protecting your relationship with your grandchildren / Traci Truly" from the library. The library/information desk is a great source. Also, "Solomon's Choice".

Grandparents Rights

Michigan has enacted legislation providing grandparents with the opportunity to seek court-ordered grand parenting time with their grandchildren. However the circumstances where grand parenting time may be ordered are narrow.

If you are a grandparent and are taking care of your grandchildren, or are concerned about your future ability to spend time with your grandchildren, it is a very good idea to speak with an attorney before a conflict arises with the parent or parents. Depending upon the circumstances, a lawyer may be able to help you protect your rights in advance of the conflict. However, if you wait until you are denied the right to visit your grandchildren, it may be too late for the attorney to act.
