Missouri acknowledges visitation rights for grandparents in certain circumstances. RSMo. 452.0402 outlines particular requirements that must be met before a grandparent is entitled to relief under this statute.
The rights afforded to grandparents are not the same as parental rights. Even if your circumstances do not meet the requirements of RSMo. 452.0402, you may still have options available. Contact the Zolman Law Firm to discuss your circumstances and options.
