Legislative Bill 124 provides additional grounds for grandparents seeking visitation with their grandchildren, including "prior reasonable efforts" which have been refused by the parents.
HSLDA strongly opposes Legislative Bill 124 because it extends grandparent visitation to the point that it limits parental rights. It affords no special deference to parents’ preferences, and requires only a bare showing by grandparents that they have made “prior reasonable efforts” to have visitation. LB 124 gives the court wide power in determining whether grandparent visitation “has been” or “may be” beneficial and in the best interests of the child.
