One of the difficulties that can happen when parents separate is that the extended family is denied the opportunity to maintain a relationship with the child or children. This can be very stressful to those family members, like grandparents. In Virginia, grandparents can ask the Court to grant them visitation rights with a grandchild. The hard part is that the person requesting visitation must convince the Court that it is in the child's best interests to have the visitation. This can be difficult to prove if the custodial parent is objecting to the visitation but it is possible.
