Rhode Island has specific statutes that govern claims regarding a grandparent’s
visitation rights. It is the goal of Rhode Island courts to act in the
best interests of the child. If one parent has been denied visitation

rights. A grandparent can also seek redress if both parents are obstructing
current visitation rights with the grandchild.
