    Unhappy grandmother trying to take away fathers visitation

    What is the name of your state? Delaware. My husband has joint custody of his 9 year old daughter. We have her every other weekend and 5 weeks in the summer. He has had a rocky relationship with his parents for years (past physical and emotional abuse as a child) He has tried many times to reconcile with them but something always happens. He has finally given up on having a relationship with them. The grandparents are in contact with my husbands ex and they see his daugher thru her. We were taking her to a dance class every Weds. last year until there was an argument with the ex. We were told we couldn't take her anymore. My husbands daughter told us she didn't want to go anymore. We ended up finding out 6 months later that the grandparents continued to take her every Weds. (my husbands daughter never told us) My husband called his parents up and demanded to know why they we doing this behind his back and having her lie to us about it. After that phone call the grandmother filed a petition saying she wants to take some of our visitation away to see her. Does she have a chance of winning?

    No, nope, none at all. Did your husband have court ordered visitation on Wednesdays? Being put in the middle creates trauma for the child, he should discuss it with his ex.

    I agree with Snostar. Also, if dad has a court order for visitation on Wednesday nights, then dad needs to file contempt against mom. If dad doesn't, then he ought to file for a modification to get more visitation time.

    grandma has no standing

    no, she is not a party to the visitation, nor does she have any standing to have the visitation reduced. only the mother does.
