Grandparents Fight for Custody in Utah

The Supreme Court in Utah has ruled that grandparents who say the deserve to have visitation rights to their grandchildren have to present substantial evidence to show why visitation is necessary. The court ruled that unless grandparents can provide this proof, such as protecting the children from harm, they do not have a right to visitation. Another exception would be a grandparent or grandparents acting as the parents to the child. The court recently ruled against a couple, Ellie and Tracy Jones Sr., who was seeking visitation rights to their granddaughter based on the argument that they had previously played a parental role in the girl's life. However, the court did not rule in their favor since the contact only consisted of once or twice-monthly visits when the child was a year old.
