Grandparents legal rights to visit their grandchildren might seem limited, but there is help to establish which rights exist. 

Families break down for any number of reasons. But if in the course of a separation, divorce, relocation or remarriage you start being kept from your Grandchildren, you should start seeking advice on your Grandparent rights as soon as possible.

At first you might be worried about creating more conflict than necessary. However, it is often in the best interests of the child to resolve any situation that is stressful to them, such as being kept away from their grandparents. 

Furthermore, these cases can often start the process of mending contentious situations. Many grandparents have found a way back in touch with their children and grandchildren with the help of a family lawyer.
