When Families Break, Grandparents Seek!
What is the disruption of the intact nuclear family? Hi, I’m Oklahoma attorney Brian Glass, and we’re on a series here pertaining to grandparents’ rights.
One of the big three elements there, of course, is an existing relationship with a child, disruption of the intact nuclear family, and proving that it is in the best interest of the child to continue this relationship with the grandparent. I’ll go back to number two there, the disruption of the intact nuclear family.
This can look several different ways, but number one is going to be divorce. If the parents were going through a divorce and one side or another for one reason or whatever it may be, decides to discontinue contact with the grandparents, the state of Oklahoma provides relief for these grandparents seeking visitation with their grandchild.
Disruption of the nuclear family can also be if the parents were never married, this would qualify as disruption. If one of the parents is deceased, if one of the parents is incarcerated, anything that would have broken up the intact nuclear family must be proven in order for a grandparent to fight with this type of visitation. If the intact nuclear family is still whole and both parents are fit, then the court will not grant visitation at that time.
