RIGHTS OF GRANDPARENTS
Relationships between family members are often at their most strained following divorce. However it is important that events do not interfere with the relationship between children and their relatives, particularly so between children and their grandparents, who often share a deep bond.
Legal rights for grandparents are currently limited, but they do exist. While a recently divorced parent may have little desire to maintain contact with his or her former spouse's family, the parent does not have the right to obstruct contact between the children and grandparents just because they find it uncomfortable.
Spectrum Family Law's experienced team can advise on the legal rights available to you as a grandparent by virtue of the Children Act 1989, outline the likely outcome in your particular case and the possibility of obtaining a Child Arrangements Order.
The prospect of resolving the dispute through means other than the court will always be explored in conjunction with considering other input such as family therapy and counselling.
