I suspect very few people. Yet when a marriage falls apart, and the grandparents come knocking at your door with a summons looking for unsupervised visitation, what are the red flags that prevent you from trusting your ex-in-laws with your precious child?
And how do you battle that out in court?
Grandparents Arrive with a Summons
This is what happened to Kristin Glueckert after she separated from her husband, Thayer Glueckert.
She and Thayer got married, had a son and while Thayer was still on active duty in the military outside of their home state of Montana, the couple separated.
What would you do if you separated from your ex, remained busy working and raising a son as a single parent and then your ex-in-laws started to demand unsupervised visitation with your only child?
In Kristin's case, her son had lived with her since birth and Thayer would see his son whenever he was home on leave.
Unhappy with the supervised visits, the grandparents suddenly decided they wanted to be able to visit with the grandson without having to see the ex-daughter-in-law.
Specifically, they wanted four, three-hour unsupervised visits per week and additional unsupervised visits on special occasions throughout the year.
Kristen wasn't too pleased.
