About This Title

Grandparents’ visitation rights are an important part of family law, with laws passed in every state since 1990. This work is a second edition of M. Kristine Taylor Warren’s Grandparent Visitation Rights: A Legal Research Guide (2001), which provided a useful summary of the statutory law, case law, and secondary sources available at that time. Over the past twenty years, grandparents’ visitation rights have grown dramatically with revisions of the law, many more cases at all levels of the federal, state, and local courts, and in secondary sources. This new edition incorporates Warren’s information with the new law and sources.
