    The definition of mother-in-law is the mother of someone's spouse. She is no longer your MIL She may be your former MIL though.

    There is no legal significance in the term mother-in-law. Why the question?

    My guess is that granny wants visitation of her own.

    Could be, but granny would be the child's grandparent either way, so the question still does not make sense to be without context.

    Being an "in-law" of someone is not a legally relevant status, so your question makes no sense.
