When can a grandparent file for custody of a child?

Grandparents in Pennsylvania sometimes wonder what their legal rights are with regard to child custody. This is especially true when the grandparents feel that the child's parents may not be responsible or suitable caretakers for the child.

Much of the criteria depends on whether the grandparents are filing for full custody or for partial custody of the child.
