Question: Dear Luise: Grandchild has lived with me since 5 mos. old, now almost 12. Gained legal custody 3 years ago, now parents are trying to force him to go live with them. They have paid no child support ( over 15.000.00 behind.) Indian tribe is involved, but only on the parents side, no regards to the fact that uprooting this child from the security and stability of home would do. Parents have thumbed their noses at the court and are getting by with it. If I lose my grandchild what can I do to get the court to grant visitation (that it would be in the best interest of the child). Judge has agreed to talk to my grandchild, so there is a glimmer of hope. P.
Answer: Dear P.: Your situation is too complex to address here. You need a really good attorney to advise and represent you. You grandson deserves a lot better than what is happening. He is so lucky to have you as an advocate. Blessings, Luise
