He was taken to court for aggression but still had regular contact with his son for 2 months having him overnight and weekends on average 2/3 nights a week . He then on advice paid only half property rent in February to ensure his son had a home and she then withdrew contact. He has a restraining order in place on her but as grandparents why are we withheld contact

If the application had been issued then a date would have been set by now and I think you need to ask your son for a more detailed explanation of what his solicitor is doing.
