Areas of Law / Divorce and Family

What rights do grandparents have to see their grandchildren when they are no longer on friendly terms with the parents? We had a very loving relationship with our grandchildren and saw them several times a week but this stopped abruptly when we fell out with our son.

I suggest you see a solicitor who is experienced in family law. He or she will probably recommend you use a mediation service which could help reunite the family. Mutual friends could help with this too. Your son needs to be reminded that your relationship with his children can only be of benefit to them even if you cannot resolve your personal differences. On the legal front you would need the court’s permission to apply for a contact order to see your grandchildren, and if all else fails your solicitor will help you with this.
