Can a sibling file for visitation?
A sibling can file for visitation if the parent(s) are not allowing him/her to see his/her brother or sister. If the sibling who wants visitation is a minor, the petition can be filed by a parent, guardian, or next friend on behalf of the minor. It does not matter if they are half-siblings or full siblings, a visitation petition can be filed either way.1
