In Georgia, grandparents have no explicit legal right to visitation with a grandchild. However, legal action may be taken to obtain permission to see a grandchild from a child’s parent or parents. A grandparent who takes legal action to obtain visitation rights may file a Petition for Visitation or join an existing case related to the termination of one parent’s parental rights, child custody or visitation.

Although there is no guarantee that either of these actions will be successful, in order to gain visitation rights a grandparent must be able to prove that such visitation is “in a child’s best interest. Additionally, a grandparent must also prove that “a child’s health or welfare would be harmed,” if no visitation is granted.
