Losing contact with a grandchild causes great heartbreak for a grandparent, often through no fault of their own.
It may be that your son or daughter have divorced or separated and the parent left with the main care of the children is not prepared to allow contact between the children and you as part of their ongoing argument with their ex spouse/partner.
In practice therefore you may have to rely heavily on the goodwill of the parent with care of the child in order to be allowed to see them, otherwise you may be shut out of your grandchild’s life.
Society is increasingly coming to realise what an important role grandparents can play. English law has a framework in which grandparents can gain regular and uninterrupted access to their grandchildren.
We can help trying to resolve this through mediation and discussions. If that is not possible we can assist with a Court application.
