As a grandparent in California, you may be able to legally enforce your visitation rights with your grandchildren, especially if your grandchild’s parents are divorced and your former son or daughter in law will not allow you to see your grandchild.

California law states that it will allow ‘reasonable visitation’, which may depend on each specific situation. Your existing relationship with your grandchild will also come into play.
