These types of determinations are frustrating, but keep in mind that these laws were put in place to keep your grandkids safe and secure during and after a Phoenix divorce. The good news is that, if you have been maintaining a loving and supportive relationship with your grandchild, you're already halfway there. The court will consider many factors when you pursue grandparent visitation in Phoenix, including:
- Why you want court-ordered visitation
- How your relationship with the child has been in the past
- If it is best for the child to maintain a relationship with grandparents and extended family, especially if one of the parents has passed away
- How much time you are requesting and the impact the non-parental visitation time will have on the child's daily life
