Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best help you

In fact contact with any adult is the right of the child and not the adult.

The question the court asks is whether any contact is in the interest of the child and there is no general expectation that a child should have a relationship with their great grandparents.

However if there is an existing close relationship between the child and its great grandparents then the Court may well feel it is in the best interests of the child for that relationship to continue

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
