The best interest of the child and the "right" to maintain relationships is also critical. Hence, the initial issue of standing to challenge the parent's decision to disallow visitation.

A grandparent rights appeal is typically very fact intensive and requires a keen attention to detail. The ramifications of each case is far reaching. Ultimately the decision is one of discretion for the judge. But judges make mistakes.

If grandparent rights were denied, it will likely be much more difficult to challenge the parents rights in the future.
