This bill adds language to the grandparent visitation statute and gives court discretion in awarding grandparent visitation. The added language establishes that when a child has been adopted and the biological parents' rights have been terminated, the biological grandparents have no entitlement to visitation rights.
The committee substitute defines what visitation privileges may be and adds a section for conditions that may be placed on the visitation to include that the grandparent not attempt to influence religious beliefs or engage in, permit, or encourage activities contrary to the parents' preferences or interfere with parents' child-rearing decisions.
