I was recently asked to provide some advice for GrandparentsPlus about the rights grandparents have to see and be involved in their grandchildren's lives. A link to the blog is attached below.
Grandparents are regularly involved in their grandchildren's' lives, often providing childcare and help on a day to day basis. If the parents of the grandchildren separate the changes to the arrangements can be very upsetting for the children and grandparents.
More information about arrangements for children can be found at www.freethsoxford.co.uk/children or feel free to give me a call if you have any queries.
As a grandparent you do not have parental responsibility for your grandchild. The parents would normally have parental responsibility and as a result are able to make the decisions about the day to day care and welfare of the child unless the Court makes an alternative order.
