Is there a statue that allows military personal the right to delegatetheir visitation rights to another family member whilethey are away?

The baby is 1 year old. I am the grandmother. Without help I don’t think the mother will let our family see the baby for over a year while my son is away with the Marines. My son has joint custody.

I can surey understand how this could be very upsetting to you.  But you may not need to have rights delegated through your son.  Most every state has a statute that allows grandparents an independent right to have visitation with their grandchildren in the event of a divorce between thei child and the other parent.  You need to check your state law on the matter.  Each state does limit the rights under certain circumstances.  Good luck.
