Recently, an Illinois Circuit County Judge granted visitation to the paternal grandparents of a young girl. The paternal grandparents had to file against their own son for visitation. The mom was never a part of the grandchild’s life, and she was raised by her father and the paternal grandparents. Child lived with the parental grandparents for almost 9 years, both with and without the father. Father eventually met a new woman and married her. She did not like the grandparents and convinced her new husband to cut his parents out of the child’s life. Grandparents filed for visitation. The Grandparents and the father could not agree to settle the case, and there was a hearing in front of a the Judge, and she awarded visitation to the parental grandparents because she found that there would be emotional harm to the child if she were cut out of the grandparents’ lives.
