It will depend on where you live, and what grandparents rights are in your area.

It really depends on where you live and why she kicked you out. In some places, grandparents rights stand, and it really isn't down to whether you are an unfit parent, but rather, about the child's rights to know their grandparents outside of your relationship with them. If you live somewhere that has grandparents rights, and your can demonstrate that a relationship with her will be beneficial for your daughter, then yes, she will get visitation rights.

That would depend on many factors. One being why she kicked you out and how old you are. Then things like if she has anything to prove you're an unfit parent, unreliable, neglectful, or if your child were in danger. Technically, depending on the state you live in, she could contact Child Protective Services and what they did from there would depend on the situation.

Bottom line? If you're a good Mom and an upstanding citizen, you shouldn't have any worries. Most attorneys wouldn't touch a case of taking a child away from its mother to give to a grandparent unless there is reasonable cause.

Keep smiling, I hope it all works out. Just remember, whatever happened between you and your Mom is between you. Make sure you never put that sweet baby in the middle. Life isn't a game where children are the pawns.

Peace, love, I hope it all works out.
