Customer Question

My daughterinlaw has accused me of molesting my grandson while bathing him. I washed his itchy bottom because she cannot be asked to clean him properly and his nickers had poo marks because he is left to clean his own buttom (he is 7 years old). She is refusing my son access to him because of this. What is our legal position. Can I sue her for defamation of character. I had three childeren of my own and I have three other grandschildren who I have bathe on numerous occasions without any complaints. She is just being nasty and vindictive to my son. What is his legal position are regards XXXXX XXXXX his son. He was taken away by my daughterinlaw to her parents' house.

Hi
Thank you for your question.
Unless you have many thousands of pounds to spare for a public court case a defamation action is not a realistic possibility.
Instead your son needs to start the process for an application for a Defined Contact Order
The starting point is to try and discuss matters with his ex using Family Mediation when/if this fails he can apply to the court for a defined Contact Order - and if his ex then makes the same allegations again your son can challenge her within the Family Court
