Grandparent rights lawyers can work closely with grandparents and families to determine a fair solution for all parties.

Grandparents and parent separation

Children can lose a relationship with loving grandparents when parents separate.

We understand how much grandparents have to offer children and we work to advise and support our clients to help them re-establish contact where that has broken down. We will advise you about the various processes available to you including family mediation and applications to court.

Legal rights

Grandparents do not have the same rights as parents and the rules for making an application to the court are different from those of parents. It is therefore very important that you take specialist advice to understand the options available to you to move forward.

Grandparents’ relationships with their grandchildren can come under threat for a number of different reasons: we also frequently advise grandparents who want to have contact with grandchildren who have been taken into care or who want to look after grandchildren when social services have become involved.

Grandparents and mediation

We also offer mediation services for family issues involving grandparents. This could involve a meeting with both parties to discuss and resolve a grandparent’s access to a child where people will be able to express their concerns to a mediator. If you think this could be beneficial for your situation, contact Louise Law.

Our experienced and skilled team includes solicitors who are accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Resolution as experts in this field.

If you want advice about your grandchildren please contact our team in Newcastle or South Shields.

You can contact us via this website at any time or call Louise Law for a no-obligation chat.
