Grandparents Rights

Grandparents’ Rights

Grandparents can play a significant role in a child’s life, however, a breakdown in a relationship between parents can have a detrimental impact on the amount of quality time grandparents can spend with their grandchildren or in some cases contact may be completely stopped.

We are here to help grandparents work with parents to maintain relationships across family generations and provide a stable and enriching environment for the child or children involved.

What should my first step be?

Seeking initial advice from a family solicitor can help establish the facts and explain the options available to you, this will allow you to make the decision that is in the best interests of you and your family.  You may have already had a big involvement in your grandchild’s life or be looking to seek contact for the first time.

Can mediation help with grandparents’ rights?

Based on the information of your circumstances, we may advise that mediation is an appropriate course of action. Mediation can be an effective process for resolving disputes in a non-confrontational manner whilst balancing the emotional and financial costs of your objectives.

At Grant Stephens Family Law, we are members of Resolution and are both qualified and experienced in helping families minimise conflict through mediation, ensuring that what is best for the children involved is kept central to discussions and outcomes.

Do I have a legal right to see my grandchildren?

Grandparents do not have automatic rights to see their grandchildren under laws in England and Wales nor do they have automatic parental responsibility. However, family courts recognise that grandparents can play an important and positive role in their grandchildren’s lives. Here at Grant Stephens Family Law, we will work with you to support, advise, and help you achieve a successful outcome.
