Our son died 9+ years ago. He left behind a 4 month old daughter. He was living with the mother. The mother tried to cut us out. We talked to a lawyer about grandparent rights. She changed her tune and let us be part of our granddaughters' life and we welcomes the mom into the family as well. Mom suffers from mental illness and over the past 9+ years it has been difficult to respect mom. She eliminates people from her and her daughter's lives so quickly. Even her own family. We (father's family) were the only constant family members in our granddaughter's life. Now mom has decided to turn on us and is making false accusations. We spoke to a lawyer and his recommendation was to go for custody of her and let mom have visitation. We cannot afford the thousands of dollars it would cost to pursue custody. Suggestions?
