Need a lawyer to understand your rights as a grandparent?
When there is a divorce in a family it is not only the children and the separating spouses that suffer. Grandparents that have had a relationship with their grandchildren also go through the turmoil brought by a separation. Often the grandparents may not see their grandchildren enough due to several reasons.
If you are a grandparent and find yourself in this situation then it is best to contact a family law lawyer. You will learn that there are some grandparents rights that are stipulated in the family act of NSW. In some cases the grandparents play a bigger role than the parents themselves. The law has now given significant recognition to the importance of a relationship between grandchildren and their grandparent.
Grandparents that have their right to access their grandchildren disregarded can take legal steps through a family law lawyer to submit an application to communicate and spend time with their grandchildren.
Family dispute cases are very uncertain and the ability to clearly present the facts may determine whether you win or not. Lawyers are also bound by the law to uphold confidentiality so the details about your application will not be disclosed to any unauthorized person.
