As a grandparent, your grandchildren are probably some of the most important and valuable people in your life, and to maintain strong relationships with them, visits are generally necessary. Family situations can prove quite complicated, however, and sometimes parents or others deny grandparents visitation, or do not permit grandparents to visit with grandchildren as much as the grandparents might like.
Many grandparents in Georgia play a very active role in the lives of their grandchildren. In fact, a number of grandparents even live with their grandchildren in multi-generational homes or raise their grandchildren, acting as their primary caregivers. It was recently reported that one in 10 American children live in households with their grandparents, and about 2.6 million American children are being raised primarily by their grandparents.
