Does your mom have an established relationship wit your niece? Looks like grandparents rights exsist in Wisconsin as long as their is an established relationship or even an attempt at a relationship if the custodial parent isn't allowing it... http://grandparents.about.com/od/grandparentsrights/qt/Grandparent_Rights_in_Wisconsin.htm

I just glanced at Texas laws.. Seems she may have a shot there too.. Your mom should talk to someone in Family court and see if it's something she can do.

My brother hasn't been allowed around his 2 sons for the most part since him and his ex split 10 years ago, they have no formal arrangement but he has had some legal issues and can't file anything so what she says goes. My mom and I have managed to maintain a good relationship with her and I see my nephews now on a very regular basis, she's has always allowed us a relationship even after remarrying and having 2 more kids. We've been invited to communions, confirmations, school plays .. Hopefully you'll luck out and she won't be as big of a bitch as you think she might become! Best of luck

When my mom and us had a falling out last year she threatened to go for grandparental rights. In WI a court will only grant them if 1. The parents are divorced or 2. One or both of the parents are deceased. Are they here in WI is back in TX. Either way, is suggest looking into the states specific laws on it.

Sorry, fail on me. I didn't read far enough. :/ I hope your moms able to get some good news through the courts. Even if they say she can visit, its not set in stone and who's to say she doesn't drive the 5 hours and they won't answer the door or her calls.

There are too many laws regarding this. Who are people to decide what God has already decided. Children are born into a village of peoples whom all have roles in that child's life. Why should anyone be allowed to make choices on who a child should be allowed to see when that was already decided at conception?
