When One Hour Per Month Isn't Enough
Whether parents throw a few crumbs to grandparents in the way of a grandchild visit or
the court orders set times, it's never enough.
Parents who are trying to avoid court may dole out the bare minimum time like an hour in a public place which is monitored.
A court ordered visitation schedule averages a few hours once per month.
Who gets cheated the most? The child especailly if they are accustomed to seeing the grandparent on a frequent basis.
Grandparents have contemplated appealing what they have and my advice is to accept it and build trust and eventually increase the time. Give it a chance, and after a year or two of consistent visits then try to work it out with the parents and if not them go back to court and request modification.
