|Grandparents' love leads to Supreme Court case|
By Tony Gonzalez|
CENTERVILLE, TENN. — Neal and Norma Jean Lovlace bring one idea to home decor: the more photos of their granddaughter the better.
little girl looks out from dozens of photo frames of all shapes, from
atop the fireplace mantel and all over the fridge in their Centerville
home. The images capture Norma Jean with the newborn at the hospital,
the grandparents with the girl at gymnastics class and the girl trying
some finger-painting — on Grandpa’s face.
Yet for almost seven years, the Lovlaces have depended on a court order
to allow them to visit each week with her — now age 10 — in a legal
battle that has now led the family to the Tennessee Supreme Court.
the coming weeks, the court will rule on one piece of the state’s
grandparent visitation law, determining the future role for the Lovlaces
and grandparents across the state. The ruling is expected to set the
standard for what grandparents need to do to make changes to
court-ordered visitation plans — when they ask for more time, different
days or other modifications.
