House Bill 157

Promote Grandparent Visitation


HB 157 would establish that grandparent visitation rights are not adversely affected by any investigation related to abuse, neglect, dependency of a child, or termination of parental rights of the grandparent’s son or daughter who is the father or mother of the child visited by the grandparent, unless the Circuit Court determines that it is in the best interest of the child to do so.


HB 157 is sponsored by Representative Bill Wesley. It has passed the Kentucky House and awaits a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
