Grandparents’ Rights

With modern life making more and more demands on parents, the idea of the extended family has become a vital element of bringing up a family. The relationship between children and their Grandparents often includes regular one to one time to allow one or both parents to work. This has resulted in Grandparents often taking an active role in the raising of Grandchildren.

Possible Scenarios

But what happens if one parent dies or the marriage or relationship breaks down? Whilst the parent may not have direct contact any more does that automatically mean that the Grandparent should cut ties?

Of course not and thankfully the rights of the Grandparent are now better recognised due to recent cases. rhw are experts in Family law and understand that compassion and understanding are at least as important as knowledge of the legislation. They can help you secure your ongoing relationship with your grandchildren.
