Grandparents in NJ may have harder time obtaining visitation with grandchildren

A proposed bill in NJ is attempting to minimize the role of grandparents in the lives of children of divorce.  At a time when children need all the support available, this bill just doesn’t make sense.


Bill Would Erect High Hurdles to Grandparents Seeking Visitation
Legislation that would toughen New Jersey’s statutory standards for granting visitation rights to grandparents, and siblings, over parental objections is drawing closer to final passage. The legislation—approved Monday by the Assembly Judiciary Committee—would codify a decade-old state Supreme Court holding that applicants may be granted visitation only if they prove denial would harm the child.
