Do you have parental responsibility?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes i have them as on birth certifcate
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
In such circumstances they have nothing to do with decisions made between you and ex for the care of the children. It is only the parents in this case who have parental responsibility.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
so have the grand parents got any rights? i have now recieved threats from my ex saying she is only goin to let me see my child once a month can she do this
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
Grandparents do not automatically have rights, but you do. If she is changing the arrangements then you should try mediation or think about making an application to the court. Follow these steps to apply for a court order.Read the guidance - http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/cb001-eng.pdfFill in the C100 court form.Send it to your nearest courtIt costs £215 to apply for a court order.

i have also just sudjested that the grandparents can come to my house to see my child every other saturday all i recieved is im bein unfair i even mentioned seeking mediation to help us resolve this but to no avail before we both apply to the courts
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
Well part of the court process is mediation anyway - so that should help. You must attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) before you can apply for a court order about the arrangements for your children. At this meeting a mediator will explain the services available to help you and your ex reach an agreement. I hope this helps

it has helped me alot but my ex is bein stubborn and is now telling me she shall see me in court plus have i got the right to now cancel all contact with my child see`in her grandparents and auntie
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
My pleasure. You can cancel their contact but I am not sure it would look good in court. You want to come across as putting the child first and being the reasonable one.
