my wife, step daughter and newborn daughther live with my parents. if my wife and i were to get divorced how often and how much could my parents see her on top of my visitation? would the fact that they are my grandparents cut down on child support possible?

Your parents would be expected to visit with your daughter on your time. They don't get their own time "on top" of yours... Grandparents have no inherent rights. And no, grandparents have no impact on child support whatsoever. This is between you and mom - you need to leave your parents out of it.

they are already very involved due to the fact we live in their house. it seems like they are always trying to referee our fights and will take both sides. it's frustrating too because my parents are old and the stress is hard on them.

Sounds like these grandparents are sticking their noses in WAY WAY WAY too much into where they need NOT to be... Them being way over involved does not change the legal answer. Visitation is between the mother and father, and mom absolutely should NOT have to give up part of her time, on top of dad's time, to anyone else. Your parents need to butt out and they need to realize that they will be expected to visit with the children on your time. Period.

Really? So they can't fight for their own time. Time that they get.

Then the time between my baby could be divided up 3 ways. 1 to my wife, 1 to me and 1 to my parents. That would really benefit me.

It doesn't work like that. You can give them part of your time, but your wife is not obligated to give them any of her time. AS you have already been told, this also has nothing to do with child support.

Or to put it in a really crude way, as I've heard an attorney say... Were your parents there when you made this baby??? If the answer's no - then no, they get no say. This is between the child's MOM and DAD, and NO ONE else. Gramma and Granpa need to seriously butt out...
