Q: My ex wife doesn't let my parents see the kids but agreed in the court that my parents have custodial rights

Answered on Mar 24, 2011
Steven D. Eversole's answer
I am somewhat confused by your question and need much greater detail. However, if your parents have been granted custody in a court proceeding that should be all they need. They just need to enforce those rights. If not, there is a Grandparents rights statute in Alabama. Either way, you should contact and Alabama Family Law attorney to discuss further.
