Depends on what state you live in. In VA Grandparents can have visitation rights just like a biological father, if they show they can and have cared for the child while in their care. ........................................................................................................................................ I live in Ohio and 4 yrs ago got grandparent visitation for my grandson. I had to have the mom and dad sign the papers and in doing that I didnt have to go to court which save money. I heard they changed the law since then but I am not 100% sure. Grandparents should have rights to see their grandbabies. We are an important part of their lives. Can you imagine your life without your grandparents??? I know I could not...........

What rights does a grandmother with temporary custody have?

Whatever rights the custodial order stipulates. If there is no legal order of custody then the grandparent has no legal rights to the child even if one of the parents has requested it. The exception would be if returning the child to a parent(s) would constitute endangerment to that child. If such is the case, the grandparent should contact the state's child protective services for assistance.
