    How do I file for Grandparent rights in the state of Oregon?

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?

    Please give more details.

    You might not even have standing to sue for visitation rights.

    grandparents have no inherit rights to their grandchildren. they only thing they can and should do is make nice with mom and dad( and that includes keeping your nose out of their business, such as telling them how to raise their grandchildren, etc)

    2010 laws for grandparents

    In 2010 Oregon state Provided grandparents with certain rights whether you are seeking custody or visitation. Petition the courts for visitation rights and in the mean time check out this site on Oregon state Laws on grandparent laws:

    Sigh.

    No, Oregon allows for grandparents to SUE for rights. It does NOT give grandparents inherent rights.

    There IS a difference.

    And really - you're going to just go ahead and TELL a poster to petition for visitation without knowing ANYTHING at all?

    Really?

    Obviously, more details are needed.

    OP, please answer the following questions:

    1. Are the parents married or divorced?
    2. If they are divorced or separated, what is the custodial situation?
    3. What role have you had in the kids' lives?
    4. What are the ages of the kids?
    5. Are there any legal matters that could affect it (arrests of either grandparent, etc)?
    6. How far apart are the grandparents from the kids?
    7. Are the parents refusing to allow contact?
    8. Why are the parents refusing to allow contact?

    Let's start with those and go from there.

    That link isn't any good.

    In addition, I just did some research on Divorcesource and I can find all kinds of gpv articles written by Kramer, but nothing after 2003. The 2003 article was not favorable for grandparents.

    Grandparents rights

    they do have laws on the books in Oregon for Grandparents rights you people all need to learn how to read and google things
    Grandparent Rights to Visitation:
    Grounds: Visitation may be granted if the grandparent has established or has attempted to establish ongoing personal contact with the child and the custodian of the child has denied the grandparent reasonable opportunity to visit the child.
    Chapter 109, Section 109.121 (O.R.S. §109.121).

    First, don't necropost.

    Second, a law like that would be unconstitutional after the Troxel supreme court decision. Are you sure it's still in force?

    low income Grandparents

    Obviously, more details are needed.

    1. Are the parents married or divorced? Both parents were/is in prison (mom 2yrs & dad7yrs-dad get home next year)
    2. If they are divorced or separated, what is the custodial situation?(married in prison –now estranged-separated, no custody agreements made )
    3. What role have you had in the kids' lives? (Raised the 2-1/2yrold boy till 6yrs in grandparents home, daughter went back to drinking)
    4. What are the ages of the kids?( was 2-1/2 now is 7yrs old bagging to live back with grandparents)
    5. Are there any legal matters that could affect it (arrests of either grandparent, etc)? ( no arrest, daughter may have claimed emotional or physical abuse against father)
    6. How far apart are the grandparents from the kids?(same town)
    7. Are the parents refusing to allow contact?(yes, daughter)
    8. Why are the parents refusing to allow contact?( we, grandparents report her to CSD and she ran w/ him)
    9. What is parent’s emotional state? Daughter is socialpathic, dad appears to have learned lesson.
    10. How wealthy are clients? Low income ( legal aid would not take case-not a priority)
    PS. CSD and PO office continue to look other way with daughter having multiple warranties for no-show on PO office and new arrests. CSD is doing what PO office say to do??? Its crazy and no legal help.
