Grandparents Rights

At Ashmans Solicitors we are frequently asked what are grandparents rights when they have been denied access to their grandchildren. The sad truth is that grandparents do not have an automatic right to contact with their grandchildren, however, family courts do recognise the invaluable role that grandparents play in their grandchildren’s lives and the positive benefits for the grandchildren in this relationship being promoted.

Whilst grandparent’s rights are limited, they can apply for permission (leave) to apply for a Child Arrangement Order to enable them to spend time with their grandchildren.


The courts will consider the following when Grandparents make an application seeking permission to apply for a Child Arrangement Order

If you are successful, you can apply for a Child Arrangement Order through the court to gain access to your grandchildren.

At Ashmans Solicitors our experienced team will ensure that your case is prepared to the highest standards and assist you to resolve any disputes amicably so that you are able to continue having an ongoing relationship with your grandchildren.
