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.
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 and do not take hasty action out of desperation which could be counter-productive.
Grandparents relationships with their grandchildren can come under threat for a number of different reasons. We have experience in advising 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. 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 Whickham or Cramlington
