I agree with my colleagues. If your son hasn't legitimized the child then he has no legal rights to the child. This means you have no rights either and the mother can deny visitation. You stand a better chance of seeing your grandchild if your son files for legitimation. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com

Has your son taken steps to legitimize the child? If not, then he doesn't even have rights to the child. The mother has the right to deny you both visitation at this point. Your son may want to take steps to legitimate the child, which would give him legal rights to her, and he can then seek visitation rights. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
