Georgia Grants Grandparents Rights

Is this an example of "Common Sense"?
From article>> "..
It will be used most heavily in cases where grandparents have financially supported a child for at least a year or have spent regular time visiting them..."
 
 
Georgia Grants Grandparents Rights
Georgia HB 1198 increases the visitation rights of grandparents whose grandchildren are entangled in cases involving child custody, divorce or the termination of parental rights.

Representative John Meadows, Republican and grandfather to twins, introduced the legislation. It gives judges the power to allow visitation between grandparents and children. It will be used most heavily in cases where grandparents have financially supported a child for at least a year or have spent regular time visiting them.

It provides an opportunity for grandparents to seek visitation in cases where the parent is deceased, incapacitated, incarcerated, or otherwise unable to exercise his or her discretion regarding a decision to permit grandparent visitation. The legislation also instructs judges considering visitation to consider whether the grandparents paid more than half the child’s living expenses or had kept the child in their home for at least six months.

This does not allow grandparents to file separate cases seeking to establish visitation, as Georgia supreme court declared such laws unconstitutional several years ago.
