Grandson is 4yrs old and dad has parenting and every other weekend but grandson doesn’t want to go with dad because he says his dad is mean. No physical evidence of abuse but does say many things to child. They have joint custody, daughter has already filed modification to parenting time on her own now dad has a lawyer, she is a single mom she works at a cafe so money is tight And i want to know if there something as a grandma I can do.
You can also hire an attorney and attempt to win third party custody rights. Typically, with both parents involved with the child, these are really difficult cases for grandparents, especially if the only complaint is that dad is mean. Court’s typically do not get involved in this type of thing absent serious allegation of misconduct.
