Visitation BIlls of Interest
The Mississippi Legislature has two (2) bills of interest related to visitation. HB 707 would propose to revise the grandparent visitation statute to include great-grand parents. This is in response to a case from last year where the appellate court ruled that great grand parents do not fit within the scope of the grandparent visitation statute. HB 2090 allows third party visitation under certain limited circumstances. I suspect this will have a constitutional challenge at some point if the bill passes.
