Do Grandparents Have Visitation Rights to Grandchildren?

Most grandparents would give anything to spend more time with their grandchildren, but familial relationships can get complicated. For a grandparent, not being able to have a relationship with their grandchild can be a very emotional experience. Tennessee law recognizes the nature of a grandparent's love and relationship to the grandchild, but the value of that relationship is viewed from the perspective of what is best for the child, not for the grandparents. Thus, several statutory hurdles must be completed before the court will consider whether a relationship with the grandparents should be ordered.
