Grandparents can be granted custody in very limited situations. More often what grandparents seek is a parenting time or grandparenting time order. In a grandparenting time order, the court will order that the grandparent gets to spend a certain amount of time with the child; either every week or per month. And in those cases, the grandparent would file a petition to establish the grandparenting time with the child and the court will go through specific factors and determine whether it's in the best interest of the child to have grandparenting time with the grandparent. If the court believes that to be true the court will order the grandparent grandparenting time with the child.
