Grandparents' Rights

One unfortunate side-effect of many separations is grandparents losing access to their grandchildren. Perhaps one parent has moved away with the children, perhaps they are denying you time with them, or perhaps you have been left out of the parents’ discussions about residence and contact altogether.

We can help you gain valuable time with your grandchildren. It is well accepted by the family courts that grandparents play a critical part in their grandchildren’s lives, including emotional and developmental support. However, you do not have an automatic right to contact.

If it is not possible to negotiate an agreement with the parents, we can help you apply for permission to get a Child Arrangements Order that will give you the right to have contact with your grandchildren.
