Attorneys 2:

Kathryn W. Olita and John W. Crow, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Mandy W.

Judge(s): DINKINS

This is a grandparent visitation case. The grandparents filed a petition seeking to have a parenting plan established which designated them as primary caregivers or, in the alternative, provided them with “regular custodial time” with respect to a grandson who previously lived at their home. The juvenile court judge held that the Grandparents did not prove that the mother opposed visitation, and dismissed the petition. Concluding that the evidence does not preponderate against the court’s finding that the mother did not oppose visitation, we affirm the dismissal of the petition.
