No matter which way you slice it, divorce is hard. There is rarely a circumstance or situation where divorce comes without its difficulties-- either financially, emotionally or mentally. The situation grows even grimmer when minor children are involved in the process. It's difficult enough to divide assets and separate what once were the inner workings of an intimate life. But to also be faced with dividing time with children can become an entire battle of its own.
Grandparents make up an integral part of the family unit, especially for grandchildren. When a family is going through a divorce however, it can be especially tricky for grandparents to secure visitation rights that give them access to a continued relationship with their grandchildren. The laws for grandparents rights vary by state, but in Oklahoma certain requirements need to be met in order to grant rights to grandparents for visitation.
