What rights do grandparents have to see their grandchildre

Resolved Question:

What rights do grandparents have to see their grandchildren

Thank you for your question.
At present under the law of Scotland grandparents have no rights of contact with their grandchildren unless the parent is incapable of looking after the child and the grandparents are trying to obtain parental rights so as to take over the care of the child completely.
The only persons who have contact rights otherwise are the parents. There was a suggestion that the Scottish Parliament was going to deal with the issue of grandparent's rights but so far they haven't done so.
So at present, grandparents' rights to see their grandchildren are conferred at the grace and favour of the parents.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
