Thank you for this information. Is this the situation in the UK?
cousins and uncles/aunts are currently in contact only every few months for a few hours
If the mother applies for a divorce is a court order for the mother to deny access for the children to a see cousins etc likely to be granted on this basis? The mother's main objection is that she doesn't like the aunts/uncles.
in which case, do the uncles/aunts/cousins have nay rights to see their nephews/nieces and to prevent the mother from speaking badly of the children's relatives to inlfuence their opinion and turn them against their relatives?
sorry but could you clarify the second point as to whether the relatives can prevent the mother from speaking badly about them?
