    Again...How long has you daughter? Define sporadic, please.

    Because you are at the 5 per day for newbies limit, edit post #20 to answer my questions.

    My daughter has gone a few months without contact. Right after giving her dad temporary guardianship in October 2019 she went into a 90 treatment program. After leaving that program she went to her sister’s out of state to continue with outpatient treatment. Then from about February 2020 to July 2020 she relapsed and we lost contact with her. She went back to her dad’s for a month in August 2020 but left again. Dec 3, 2020 she went to a 35 day inpatient. She is now in sober living and has a well paying job. She’s trying. My daughter does not get along well with her stepmother so staying long at her dad’s was difficult but it was the only way to see her son.

    Oklahoma is one of a handful of states that will grant grandparents visitation as a matter of law.

    Oklahoma law allows a court to grant grandparents visitation rights under certain circumstances.

    In order for the court to order grandparent(s) visitation it must shown that such visitation is in the best interests of the child and the parent(s) are unfit OR the child would suffer harm (potential harm) if said visitation rights were not to be granted.

    That is because the influence of the grandparent(s) on the child has been shown to be positive for said child(ren).

    The Legal Aid Society of Oklahoma offers a more detailed explanation:

    You don't have any rights. You could file for custody but not sure if you'll get it. Your best bet is to talk to a lawyer to see if you can get any custody. Or you wait to see if your daughter gets custody but I doubt she does anytime soon if she just got out of rehab and is in a halfway house.

    Your daughter needs to talk to a lawyer to find out what she needs to do to get sole custody of her child from her dad and stepmom.

    If there's a court order for visitation for you, then take them to court if they're violating it. But your daughter is gonna have a road ahead of her to get any custody back of that child.
