PA Grandparents' Rights
Pennsylvania recognizes the rights of PA grandparents to seek visitation, partial physical custody, or primary physical custody of their minor grandchild or grandchildren. The grandparents must prove that the requested custody would be in the best interests of the minor grandchild or grandkids and would not interfere with the relationship between the parent and the minor child.
Pennsylvania Grandparent's Partial Custody and Visitation
After the United States Supreme Court case of Troxel v. Granville was decided, some parents and their attorneys have argued that it is unconstitutional for a state court to award even partial custody or visitation to grandparents if the parent disagrees with the grandparents' request for partial custody or visitation. Florida and some other states that have directly confronted the issue have determined that it is unconstitutional to force a fit parent to be compelled to allow contact with their minor children's grandparents. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court in the case of Hiller v. Fausey has recently ruled that the Pennsylvania Grandparent Visitation Statutes are constitutional and are a means to protect the emotional well-being of children who have been estranged from their grandparents.
Pennsylvania Grandparent Primary Custody Law
A case involving grandparents' primary custody rights evolved through the Armstrong County Court of Common Pleas. In the case of K.B., II, K.B. and B.B. v. C.B.F., the Armstrong County trial court awarded primary physical custody of a minor child to his paternal grandparents even though the court found the child's mother to be an adequate parent. Attorney Lisa Vari was retained to represent the mother in her appeal to the Pennsylvania Superior Court. In the case argued before the Pennsylvania Superior Court, Attorney Lisa Marie Vari argued that only if a parent is declared to be unfit should grandparents have the right to seek primary physical custody of their minor grandchildren. While Attorney Vari was successful in having the mother's primary custody rights restored, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania held that grandparents have the right to sue parents for primary physical custody of their grandchildren even if the parents are deemed to be fit parents. On January 2, 2004, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed to review the Superior Court's ruling on the K.B., II, K.B. and B.B. v. C.B.F. case. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court heard arguments from both Attorney Lisa Vari and counsel for the grandparents in September of 2004. In November 2005, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed the appeal filed by Attorney Vari as "improvidently granted". It was later learned that the appeal had been improperly granted because Attorney Vari's client, the mother, had won the return of her child from the grandparents at the Superior Court level. It is a true shame that the Court did not have the opportunity to review its prior opinion in the Baxter case and make some necessary changes.

Please Note An Estimate Of The Time Needed For Each Step.
Steps to Become a Lawyer...
Step One - Obtain a bachelor’s degree from a college or university. This needs to be a four-year degree; an associates degree is not sufficient for admission into law school. Your particular choice of major does not matter much, at least not for purposes of getting into law school. However, your GPA in school is extremely important in determining whether you will get to move on to a law school.
Step Two - Take the Law School Admissions Test, better known as the LSAT. This is a test that is similar to exams such as the ACT or SAT, but this particular test is geared towards evaluating your potential to perform well in law school. This half-day test contains multiple choice questions as well as essay questions. This test is critically important, and most people serious about going to law school will purchase study materials, take practice tests, and perhaps even take an LSAT prep course to get ready for the exam.
Step Three – Get accepted to law school. Admission to law school will be based almost entirely on your college GPA and your LSAT score, and many law schools have minimum scores you must reach on each before they will even consider your application.
Step Four – Graduate from law school. It takes a minimum of three years to graduate from a full-time law school program; longer if you attend a program that has a part-time option. Law school exams are almost always essay questions, and to do well you have to learn the formula for writing a law school essay. It is not enough to know the information; you have to know the proper format for spitting it back out to the professor who is scanning your answer for the key words and phrases. The students who figure out the system early are the ones who will be on law review.
Step Five – Study for the bar exam. While you might believe that your law school education prepared you for the bar exam, what it really prepared you for was to cram three years of legal education into a few weeks of bar review time. Most law school graduates will take a bar review course to organize their test preparation and to make sure they cover everything they need to know. After all the time and money you have invested in your legal education to this point, investing in a bar review course is a small price to pay for passing the bar on your first attempt.
Step Six – Pass the bar exam for the state in which you want to practice law. The testing protocols and requirements vary from state to state, but most states utilize exam materials provided by the National Council of Bar Examiners. The required tests may include the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE), the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE), and the Multistate Performance Test (MPT).
Step Seven – Pass the Character and Fitness evaluation. Those who think lawyers have no ethics may be surprised that applicants to the bar in most states must submit to a Character and Fitness Investigation, usually conducted by the National Council of Bar Examiners. This investigation is extensive and intrusive, delving not only into whether you have a criminal record, but also looking at traffic tickets, credit reports, substance abuse issues, and even medical records. The evaluation may be unpleasant to some, but it is a necessary step in order to practice law.

Legal Rights University Statistics?
Some Universities Publish Statistics (Such As Acceptance Rate, Average Sat Scores, Etc.). Can I Use These Statistics To Publish A Fact Sheet (Which Will Not Be Free) The Way Business Week Or Us News Do In Their University Ranking Reports? Do I First Have To Get Each University'S Permission? Or Even Pay Royalties?
"Legal rights university statistics? Some universities publish statistics (such as acceptance rate, average SAT scores, etc.). Can I use these statistics to publish a fact sheet (which will not be free) the way Business Week or US News do in their university ranking reports? Do I first have to get each university's permission? Or even pay royalties?"
There is no quick answer to your question(s).
It might help you to know that colleges and universities voluntarily participate with media outlets to obtain the best ratings they can from those media outlets-- often filling out questionaires and providing information requested. This is true of both BusinessWeek's B-School information and U.S. News and World Report's rankings information.
It's very unlikely that you would be able to use information published by colleges and universities-- especially those that are private-- for your exclusive commerical benefit. They did all the work of compiling the information and you want to profit from it... and that doesn't always work out. (It's possible that a Freedom of Information Act might allow you to obtain information from a public school and that it could then be used in a commercial enterprise, but there are limitations in general and even limitations specific to the use of information for commercial purposes.)
The best way to find out is to look at the publication you intend to use. If the publication has a copyright, then you can't use it without permission. If there is no copyright, then you have a good argument for why you should be able to use the information. I say you have a good argument, because you might still be sued!
The best way to avoid complications is to work out a deal with the institution where they license your use of the information.
