  • Grandparental visitations -- How do I go about appeal?

    I have a case for grand-parental visitations. My son passed and granddaughters mother will not allow me to see her. We went to court today. Judge allowed her to provider her response declaration at that time. I felt as if i was not able to fully respond to all statements. She is stating that she don't want child to visit because me and my family are a bad influence. Judge stated he will send judgment to us in mail within 2 weeks. I feel that i was not given time to address all her accusations. I received a denial from the court today per her allegations. How do i go about appeal. I don't have the income to hire an attorney. Or what options do i have at this point?

    Some states do not recognize grand parent visitation. The judge hears the case because it is filed. He lets the parent speak, hoping they will agree to it, though they are not legally required to. What is your state?

    I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

    Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

      The problem here is that most states do not recognize a grandparents' right to visitation with their grandchildren without permission from the parents.

      Apparently, the children's mother presented a compelling argument, and the judge decided against you. That's a risk you take by representing yourself in court without an attorney.

      You can certainly appeal, but that is a very difficult process without an attorney. In an appeal, you would not be able to re-try the case or present new evidence, but only could appeal based upon misinterpretation of the law as it applies in your case. If it's just a matter of you not being able to convince the judge based on what was already presented, trying to appeal would likely be a waste of time for you.
