Contact with Grandchildren

HomeFamilyContact with Grandchildren

I want to see my Grandchildren, what can I do?

The Courts now recognise the fact that grandparents now play a significant role in their grandchildren’s life. If you have played a role in your grandchildren’s life and the parents have said that you can no longer see them, you could make an application to the Courts.

You would first need to get the Courts permission (leave) to make an application, however, once that has been obtained you should be able to convince the Courts that you have a right to have contact with the children.

If this is the case for you then please do not hesitate to contact us for further information and to discuss your case specifically to see whether you would be able to make an application.
