Missouri Grandparents Rights in Divorce
Grandparent Rights to Visitation:
Visitation may be granted when the parents of the child have filed for dissolution of their marriage, when one parent of the child is deceased and the surviving parent denies reasonable visitation, or when a grandparent is unreasonably denied visitation with the child for a period of more than ninety days. The court must find that the visitation is in the child's best interest.
Chapter 452, Section 452.402 (A.M.S. 452.402).

When Adoption Occurs:
The right of a grandparent to seek or maintain visitation may terminate upon the adoption of the child by someone other than a stepparent, another grandparent, or other blood relative.
Child Custody Statutes:
Best interest of child considering:
  1. wishes of the parties;
  2. wishes of the child;
  3. interaction and interrelationship between child and parties, siblings, and other significant persons;
  4. child's adjustment to home, school and community;
  5. mental and physical health, and any abuse history, of all persons involved;
  6. child's needs for continuing relationship with both parties, and the ability and willingness of each to actively perform their duties as mother and father for the needs of the child;
  7. any intention of either party to relocate outside the state;
  8. which party is more likely to allow frequent and meaningful contact between the child and the other party; and
  9. any other relevant factor.
A.M.S. 452.375 et seq.
