Can a family get visitation to see a great-nephew?

Question Details:

Does my family have rights to see my great nephew? My niece died 5 years ago. My great-nephew's father has custody. He has a new girlfriend and decided to cut off ties to our family. He has cut off his e-mails, phone numbers, and moved in with his girlfriend. He wrote several letters stating his wishes. He has no good reason to cut us off except that he has moved on and is happy with his new life. Do we need to hire an attorney or can we get visitation on our own?
