My question involves a child custody case from the State of: ohio
I am wanting information on getting visitation rights to my half-brothers. They are my father's and my step-mothers children. My father is in jail for a period of time and now my step-mother and I do not talk. She has requested that nobody, grandparents and myself, from our side of the family can see the boys. She is even going as far as to changing the boys last name to her maiden name. They are 6 and 9. I have been there for them since they were babies and i have never had problems with my step mother until my dad left. I am a student, i work, no criminal record, im engaged and have a child of my own. I live in a safe rural area for which i have lived for almost 5 years.
I really just want to know do i have rights, and what steps do i need to take in order to request visitation. Thanks!
