Abstract:     
The first part of this article explores the political and societal origins of grandparent visitation statutes. It also reviews the basic types of grandparent visitation statutes and the arguments made on each side of a typical pre-Troxel grandparent visitation suit. This section explains how these arguments evolved nationally over time, and how each was treated in the courts. The second part of this article reviews the plurality's decision in Troxel and relates aspects of it to the corresponding principles in pre-Troxel decisional law. In the third section, the article analyzes judicial responses to Troxel, focusing on California grandparent visitation decisions.
