Opinion by Illinois Supreme Court on Grandparent Visitation Rights (3963 words)
The State of Illinois has sought to protect relationships children have with their grandparents yet it also must protect the rights of a parent to whose preliminary right and responsibility it is to care for and nurture their children.
Although the appellate court examined the constitutionality of section 607(b)(1) as applied to a single parent's decision to limit grandparent visitation, we are compelled to examine the overall constitutional validity of the statute.
The Court did not reject the significance of the relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren; it simply acknowledged the presumption that a parent's decision regarding visitation is in the children's best interest.
