Virginia Visitation: Grandparent Rights
Also see AARP Grandparent Information Center.
A recent Virginia case has put a further damper on the rights which the Legislature had apparently granted. There is a rather heavy burden upon the grandparent to plead and demonstrate that the child would actually suffer if grandparent visitation was not achieved. If the custodial parent has remarried, it seems to put the custodial parent in an even stronger position vis a vis the grandparent.
