Grandparent Access Application

Are you a Grandparent who is struggling to have contact with your grandchild? We understand that as a grandparent that your involvement in the upbringing of a child can be of vital importance,

Mediation If Possible

There are numerous obstacles for grandparent(s) to overcome in obtaining contact with your grandchild if Court help is required. However, prior to Court intervention, it is recommended that mediation be attempted in order to come to an amicable decision.

Legal Proceedings

However, if mediation is unsuccessful then the courts will need to be consulted on the matter. The difficulty arises with grandparents having contact because unlike a parent, there is no presumption that a grandparent should have contact with their grandchild.

Therefore, in order to obtain help from the Court, the Court will consider the following:

1.     The reasons for the Grandparent(s) making the Child Arrangements.

2.     The connection that the Grandparent(s) have with the child.

3.     The amount of disruption that the application may cause to the child(ren)’s life.

Although these are the general considerations of the court, each case is decided on their individual facts.

As a result, we at Grant Stephens Family Law will ensure that your matter is tailored to your situation and handled in a discreet and confidential way.
