Aunts and uncles are classed as extended family in exactly thesame way as grandparents are and as such, have no rights.
Even grandparents have no rights unless there is an existingstrong bond
Grandparents have no right of access or contact unless there issome kind of existing strong relationship such as a grandparent has been a carer for some time. The courts wont grant a right automatically.
aunts and uncles are treated in exactly the same way I am sorry tohave to tell you.
I obviously do not know went on between you and your niece but ifyou continue to bombard her with text messages, or any other kind of message,there is a possibility that she could refer the matter to the police for themto issue you a warning under the Protection from Harassment Act. Obviously, Ido not know whether that is a possibility but I mention for completeness.
I am sorry, I appreciate that this is not the answer you wantedbut there is no point in me misleading you. I have a duty to advise youtruthfully and honestly, even if that answer is unfavourable.
Doesthat answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
