Q: Seeking grandparent visitation

Grandchild lives with paternal grandmother placed by DCBS and permanency was done. I've been getting her for most part every other weekend since May. Every time I don't do things the. Way the other grandmother wants she stops contact. In December I helped child's mom get into in pt treatment. We went to court and the case was reopened which means at some time my daughter can get her back. This angered grandmother and agin visits stopped. I consulted attorney but live on disability. Was nurse for 20 plus yrs but now have multiple health issues. Just over limit to qualify for legal aide. Thought about taking chance and trying it myself. Don't want my grand baby to think I quit on her she has enough people absent in her life and that is what she'd be told. Trying to get as much info as I can. St law pretty clear we've had ongoing relationship and visit were clearly stopped out of vindictiveness.

A: Most DNA courts will appoint you counsel if you cannot afford it. If they’re going to tie your visitation to their pleasure or displeasure, you really have nothing to lose by going back to court.
