Hi
What arrangements have been made for contact with your son now that the child has moved away?
Claire
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Nothing yet as she finished it with him while she was up there saying she wants to be just friends, he had no idea this would happen.

Hi
Grand parents have no automatic right to even apply for contact - although the court will consider such application where it is in the best interest of the child to maintain an existing close relationship
In a case such as this grandparents are expected to share the contact applied for and obtained by the father
