Ohio Grandparents Rights in Divorce

Visitation may be granted as a part of or subsequent to the parents' divorce, dissolution of marriage, legal separation, annulment, or child support proceeding if grandparent has an interest in welfare of child and visitation would be in child's best interest. Also if one of the child's parents is deceased, or if child's parents were never married to each other.
Title 31, Section 3109.051 (O.R.C. 3109.051, 3109.11).
