Do grandparents have rights when it comes to custody?

Grandparents play an important role in their grandchildren's lives and the larger family dynamic. In the best case scenario, grandparents have consistent access to their grandchildren, with the parents' blessing, and are able to develop close, positive relationships with them. However, best case scenario doesn't happen all the time, and there are times when grandparents may find themselves facing an uphill battle trying to get access to their grandchildren. If you are currently dealing with this type of scenario, you may be able to file for custody in the family courts, but you need to be aware of what that entails.
