To Grandmother's House We Go

Thanksgiving weekend seems an appropriate time to review some of the recent case law developments regarding Grandparent visitation.

But first, some data:

In a unique national partnership, AARP, Child Welfare League of America, Children's Defense Fund, and Generations United have created fact sheets containing the most up-to-date state information related to grandfamilies, including:
• Census data on the number of grandparent caregivers
• A comprehensive list of kinship care family resources and services
• State foster care policies for kinship caregivers
• Information about key public benefits programs
• State kinship care laws

(With thanks to Professor Kim Dayton, editor of the Elder Law Prof Blog, for this link)(bgf).
