Father’s mother petitioned the court for visitation. Father had been deported to Equador. The court denied visitation to the grandmother. She appealed.
Grandmother showed her involvement in the child’s life. But, evidence also showed her interference with the child’s mother. The mother is the child’s decision-making authority. There was evidence that the grandmother attempted to poison the child’s mind against the mother.
Grandmother felt that she had presented sufficient evidence. She felt she showed that a denial of visitation would harm the child. The court said that the child was not harmed by the refusal of the child’s mother to allow visitation. Grandmother did not prove otherwise.
In re Anaya R. 2012 IL App (1st) 12110.
