Hi there, My husband's mother is seeking mediation and court ordered access to our son. Long story but the short version is we are estranged from her and have been for 2 years. Our son is 1 and she has NEVER been part of his life and after certain things she has said we do not want her to be. My legal question is this: If my husband and I are still married, have no contact with her and she has never been in our sons life, does she have any legal grandparents rights to him? I know if my husband and I were divorced that she would be able to gain access to him, but if we've disowned her can she be doing this to us? I don't see why someone that threatened to "Show me what it feels like to lose a son" should be allowed visitation rights with said child, despite trying to convince my husband that he "Probably won't even be your son anyway". FRUSTRATED, STRESSED AND ANXIETY ATTACKS ARE TAKING OVER!
