Do grandparents have legal rights to see their grandchildren?

Posted on 14th July 2017 in Family Law

Grandparents do not have any automatic legal rights in respect of their grandchildren but they can seek the court’s permission to make an application for a Child Arrangements Order (“contact”). Before they do this it is highly recommended that grandparents try to make contact with their grandchildren’s parent(s) or guardian(s) to discuss the possibility of regular contact.
