We would like some sort of guardianship of our grandson. We are in our 70's. We have raised him since birth. Parents divorced when he was 1.5 years old. Parents have 50/50 custody, but in reality, Mother has him 2 days/week due to her work schedule. Father (our son) did things with the child the first 2 years, then got a girlfriend with children. He saw his son for about 2 hours in January, none so far in February.
We pay for all food, diapers, clothing and school tuition. Mother reimburses half for tuition; father pays NOTHING.
We would like half-custody with the mother, but are afraid this would mean the end of total relationship with our son, which we do not want.
Any ideas, other grandmothers in this situation???
