Welcome to Grandparents Legal Centre

The Grandparents Legal Centre are specialists in advising about the steps grandparents need to take to try and resolve certain difficult issues.  These can include contact to Grandchildren, taking on children when a parent can not look after a child, divorcing in later life and Grandparents being involved in care proceedings involving a grandchild. We hope to be able to give you information about Grandparents rights through the family courts.

When relationships break down in families, grandparents, who have been a major part of children’s lives, are sometimes denied any contact. 42% of grandparents lose contact with their grandchildren when their parents separate.
