Grandparent Rights in Family Law

Within the realm of Family Law, the rights of a grandparent hold a special and significant place, acknowledging the vital and often profound role that grandparents play in the lives of their grandchildren.


There is no enshrined legislation which provides for grandparents to have specific rights to see their grandchildren. The Court recognises that children should have relationships with persons who are significantly involved in their life and where the Court forms the view, that such a relationship to the child is in the child’s best interests. One of the best examples of such a relationship is a grandparent but can include other relatives or persons whom the child has developed a strong and important bond.
