My wife's father is threatening legal action to force visitation with his grandchildren (our children). The grandfather lives in CT and we live in PA. My wife and I are happily married and have a stable home. My wife doesn't want her father to see our children because he is an alcoholic and has been abusive to her for most of her life.
Does he have legal grounds to force visitation and will we be required to retain counsel to defend his legal action? We do not have funds to retain counsel.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
