Thousands of dollars down the line, Lilly's grandparents were granted standing in the case of their granddaughter whom they raised from birth.
I am presenting legislation to DSHS Sec. Susan Dreyfus that, if passed, would give immediate standing to relatives such as grandparents. It is absolutely outrageous that the department and the attorneys for the AG have worked so hard to keep grandparents out of court in custody cases.
I want to thank my legislative aide, Brian Lohr, for his help in preparing this legislation. He has been closely working with me, my constituents, and other interested parties to create a folder of proposals. Brian is an attorney who has worked in the field representing parents and other relatives. We are all so blessed to have him!
