Mother and grandparents' battle over visitation with child

According to reports, a Florida mother who is in a visitation battle with her in-laws in Illinois may be arrested and even extradited to Illinois where she is in danger of facing some serious charges.

The woman's saga began when her husband was murdered by her grandmother sometime in 2008. Since then she has been in a visitation battle with her daughter's paternal grandparents over visitation. The grandparents' have being fighting to see their granddaughter, but despite a court order ordering her to send the 5-year-old to Illinois to visit them, the Florida woman refuses to do so. As a result, she has spent nearly six months in jail.

According to the mother, the few times her daughter visited the paternal grandparents she came home in a subdued manner and was a different child. The mother believes that her daughter is not benefiting from the visits with her paternal grandparents and it is not safe for her. She believes that the paternal grandparents are interested in revenge and states that they can come to Florida and visit their granddaughter as often they want.

The battle for visitation with the 5-year-old is clearly an emotional issue for both sides of the family. The tragic circumstances surrounding the family indeed make the issue of visitation with the grandparents even more difficult. When faced with such visitation issues, it is important for the families to put the best interests of the child first and come up with a mutually agreeable and workable solution.
