Most likely not. I don’t believe that it has been litigated or a judge has made a decision, but we normally look at a step-grandparent who is married to the biological grandparent of the child, and they as a couple get visits with the grandchild. But I haven’t seen a situation in which a step-grandparent was seeking visitation with step-grandchildren after the step-grandparent was no longer married to the biological grandparent.
