Divorce or separation can leave grandparents without contact with their grandchildren.
Grandparents do have limited legal rights and an application can be made to the court if a grandparent is being refused contact with their grandchild or if the contact is generally being obstructed.
Step-parents often play an important part in the lives of their step-children yet they have legal parental responsibility for the child and cannot therefore be involved in making decisions regarding the child. If the biological parents agree, a Parental Responsibility Agreement can be entered into or it may be possible to ask the court to make such an order.
Our specialist family solicitors can advise you regarding Parental Responsibility Agreements and can draft the agreement for you. We can also advise and assist you with regard to making an application to the court. Please call us on 01442 242999 for further information.
I know that you are all just doing your job, however you have given me great support through this difficult time and it’s great to feel that you’re in my corner
We were both completely happy and satisfied with the outcome. We cannot have hoped for a better outcome despite the circumstances and the potential outcome. We cannot thank Ciaran and Wheldon Law enough.
Excellent, professional service throughout. Would use Wheldon Law solicitors in the future if required. Would also recommend to family and friends.
I cannot thank you enough. You have all been amazing. Brilliant service.
I would definitely advise others of the excellent service that I received and would recommend your law firm – thank you.
Hopefully I will not need the services of a solicitor again but if I do I would not hesitate to contact your company.
I’ve never needed a solicitor before so was unsure as to what to expect. Tina put me as much at ease as possible and was very friendly and honest with what she told me. Thank you so much!
I found the advice and service provided very friendly and comforting at a time of extreme distress and all matters were dealt with very discreetly and professionally.
Gareth did a great job.
Very happy with the result and I know this is down to Wheldon Law, thus very happy with the service. Thank you.
