Grandparents Rights

Many grandparents yearn to spend time with their grandchildren but are denied the opportunity to do so. Realistically, grandparents do not have direct automatic rights to meet or spend time with their grandchildren.

What You Need to Know

Family courts, in the best interests of the children, recognise the importance of having a grandparent around. Unless the grandparents have a history of being abusive or harmful to children or have a violent criminal record, the family courts will not refuse them access to their grandchildren.
 

If you fulfil the basic criteria, you might be eligible to apply for a contact order where the court will consider the following aspects before granting you the permission to meet your grandkids:

  • Your personal history with the child.
  • Your criminal record, if any.
  • Any aspect which may indicate that you might cause harm to the child
  • The content and context of your application.

At Osbourne Pinner, we answer our client’s questions such as ‘what are grandparents’ rights?’ or how can they get access to their grandchildren?

  • Use language which our clients can understand easily
