Grandparents may join an action between the parents, or initiate an independent action, for the purpose of obtaining a court order for visitation with grandchildren.

Since parents have a fundamental right to the custody and management of their child, only a compelling interest would be sufficient to allow a state to interfere with the parent’s right to raise his/her child.
