Thank you for your question.
We will require more information in order to advise as to your exact position. If there is no possibility for you to reach an agreement with your grandchildren’s mother, you may have the option to apply to the court for a child arrangements order to have contact with the grandchildren. However, as the grandparents you may require the court’s permission in order to apply for the child arrangements order. If proceedings are initiated, the court will have regard to the welfare checklist and what is in the best interests of your grandchildren.
