The Act prohibits an original action for grandparent visitation where the parents of the child are not separated and the child is living with both parents. If an original action is allowed, the Act requires the court to make specific written findings of fact that the granting of grandparent visitation rights is in a child's best interest and that the child's health or welfare would be harmed if such visitation is denied. The Act also provides for the appointment and compensation of a guardian ad litem and mediation under certain circumstances.
