In certain circumstances, grand parents can petition the court to have visitation rights. However, those visitation rights are limited by parents’ constitutional rights to decide with whom their children will associate. Three statutes address grandparent visitation: Family Code sections, 3100, 3102, 3103, and 3104. Section 3102 allows grandparents to seek visitation rights when the parents of the children are deceased. Section 3103 allows grandparents to seek visitation prior to a final divorce between the parents or during a custody proceeding. Section 3104 permits grandparents to seek visitation after a judgment dissolving the marriage has been entered and awarding sole custody to one parent.
