Grandparents Rights. Report Together with Additional Views [To Accompany H. Con. Res. 45 which on Feb. 7, 1983, Was Referred Jointly to the Committees on the Judiciary and Education and Labor] from the Committee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, 98th Congress, 1st Session, Rept. 98-61, Part 1.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This very brief legislative report summarizes the House of Representatives Concurrent Resolution 45, a resolution calling for the development of a model Uniform Grandparents Visitation Act (UGVA). The UGVA would grant grandparents adequate rights to petition state courts for visitation privileges with their grandchildren following marriage dissolution of such grandchildren's parents. The legislative background of and justification for the resolution are stated, and its costs and inflationary impact are estimated. Additional views included in the report emphasize that the resolution does not mandate or require the development of such a model act and point out that realizing the aims of the resolution may take considerable time.
