Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
Please may I ask - is it 6 years since you have seen your grandsons? or have they been in touch even though you are not speaking to your daughter?
Thank you for response.
I am so sorry to hear about the breakdown of the family relationship with your daughter.
I am also sorry for the advice that I have to give you in respect of your grandchildren. It is possible to make an application to a Family Court to ask for a Child Arrangement Order to spend time with your grandchildren. The problem that you have is that the court will only entertain your application in respect of the 14 year old and not the 16 year old. The court will also give regard to the wishes and feelings of the 14 year old. If he said that he didn't want to see you then your case would be unsuccessful. It would also be a consideration of the court as to your grandsons placement - that being with his mother. The problem that you have here is that even if the 14 year old wanted to spend time with you - this could cause difficulties for him with his mother and the court wouldn't want to destabalise this placement.
I know that the above isn't what you want to hear but I do have to be honest.
An option that you could try is family mediation. This is an independent organisation that will try and help you and your daughter discuss seeing your grandchildren. There are lots of family mediation and there will be one local to you. Just google family mediation in your area and give them a call to get the ball rolling.
