At Tollers Solicitors, we understand the importance of maintaining strong relationships between grandparents and their grandchildren and we know that when disputes arise regarding grandparent rights and visitation this can be very distressing.
Grandparents play a vital role in a child’s life, providing love, care, and support. However, there are situations where contact with grandchildren may be restricted or denied. Our team of family law solicitors can assist you in understanding your rights as a grandparent and help you navigate the legal process to secure visitation rights.
Child Law Solicitors – Grandparent Contact Disputes
We approach grandparent rights cases with sensitivity and understanding, recognising the emotional impact they can have on all parties involved. Our goal is to find amicable solutions that prioritise the child’s best interests while promoting positive relationships between grandparents and grandchildren. We can help in various ways, including:
- Legal Advice: Our team will provide specialist legal advice tailored to your specific situation. We will explain your rights as a grandparent, the legal options available to you, and the potential outcomes of pursuing a legal case. We will guide you through the entire process, ensuring you are well informed and supported every step of the way.
- Mediation and Negotiation: We encourage open communication and aim to resolve disputes through mediation and negotiation. Our experienced solicitors will guide you through the process, to try and help you to reach a mutually beneficial agreement with the child’s parents or guardians.
- Child Arrangement Orders and Modification of Existing Orders: If you are not able to reach an agreement or if mediation is not successful our experienced solicitors can assist you in applying for permission to apply for a Child Arrangements Order and the application for a Child Arrangements Order, providing specialist advice about seeking contact with your grandchild(ren). We can guide you through the entire application process, ensuring that your application accurately reflects the times you have previously spent with your grandchild, your wishes and detailing how your presence will positively impact your grandchild’s life. If you already have a court order in place but circumstances have changed, such as a significant change in the child’s living arrangements, we can assist you in seeking amendments to the existing order to better protect your grandparent rights.
- Court Representation: If your case does proceed to court our skilled family law solicitors can represent you in court.
