Do grandparents have visitation rights in New Jersey?

According to LiveAbout, prior to 1993, New Jersey's grandparent visitation statute only granted grandparents visitation rights when the parents were divorced, separated or deceased. However, that year the courts removed all three stipulations, thereby allowing grandparents to sue for visitation of children living in nuclear families. This was a win for grandparents but a short-lived one. In 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a fit parent who cut off the relationship between a child and grandparent is presumed to have acted in the best interests of the child. Since that decision, the courts have called into question the constitutionality of New Jersey's grandparent visitation laws on several occasions.  

Statistics show divorce and marriage rates may be down

Many people who live in New Jersey may well have heard people spout off about the high rate of failure among marriages today. There can be a lot of reasons that such claims are made or believed but it is useful to look at some actual data to confirm or deny these assertions. Some research actually seems to indicate that the divorce rate in America is not as high as many people might claim or think.
