Question: I want to file papers in family court to be able to visit with my Grand-kids witch I been supporting off and on 75% of the time my daughter is in rehab right now the kids CPS took them to Mesa and i can't see them alone nor take them to the store come to find out my daughter had told cps that I'm endangering the kid that I'm distort I can't take care of them she dose not want me to be with them. When ever she get upset with me she likes to tell stories. (last time she told her friends that she thru me down the stairs to get me out of the house!) Will I be doing the right thing filing??

Answer: Arizona Revised Statute 25-409 discusses third-party rights, which provides for a person other than a legal parent may petition the superior court for legal decision-making authority or placement of the child. Please review this statute to determine if filing is the right thing to do for you and your grandchild.
