Google Answers: Grandparent's visitation rights in Ohio
I need information concerning visitation rights of Grandparents in the state of Ohio. Does establishing a trust fund of a substantial amount grant visitation rights? Does giving the grandchild a gift of a significant amount of money (for food, clothes, etc) grant visitation rights? I would like references to the specific laws, if possible. Also, the amounts necessary for the trust fund/gift. I remember once reading in a law book that establishing a trust fund granted visitation rights, however I can no longer find that, and the law may have changed in that time.
