grandparent visitationA grandparent’s court-approved access to a grandchild.
? The Supreme Court recently limited a grandparent’s right to have visitation with his or her grandchild if the parent objects, citing a parent’s fundamental right to raise his or her child and to make all decisions concerning the child free from state intervention absent a threat to the child’s health and safety.
