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
