Contact With Orders

Having Grandchildren who you don't see can be heart breaking. It may feel that there are no options for you.

The courts are aware of the important part that the extended family have in a child's life.

If you have been actively involved in your Grandchild's life before their parents separate it may be that a court will agree that you can have contact with them.

You will need to begin the process with mediation.

The court will always make a decision based on what is in the child’s best interests.

Special Guardianship Orders

You can apply to be a child’s special guardian when they cannot live with their birth parents and adoption is not right for them.

Usually you will be responsible for looking after the child(ren) until they’re 18.

You’ll make all day to day decisions about the child, for example schooling and medical treatment. You do not have to discuss these decisions with the birth parents.

There are some decisions that have to be agreed by everyone who has parental responsibility.

The court will always make a decision based on what is in the child’s best interests.
