Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
I'm just reviewing your question.
How old is the child?
How old are the parents?
Where does the child live?
Please ignore the phone call request, it's an automatic pop up!
There are no hard and fast rules about who is entitled to what level of contact.
It is about what is in the child's best interests.
The baby is very young still, so stability and routine are very important.
Father should be able to have a meaningful relationship with his child, but obviously at his age this needs to be managed carefully and would most probably be supervised by an adult for now.
Mother will need a lot of support, I imagine.
Grandparents don't have the same rights as parents, but it may perhaps be appropriate to have father and his parents have a longer period of time together with the baby at the weekend, in time.
But stability and routine are key, and because of the parent's ages there are additional factors to consider of course.
I think the best advice is to be open and flexible to increasing contact, as long as it is consistent with the baby's needs.
It's a positive that everyone wants to be involved.
Are the father's parents contributing financially at all?
OK. I expect dad's parents will have to contribute more over time.
Is there anything else I can clarify for you?
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
In the meantime, if you could take a second to provide a 5 star rating I'll be credited for my time spent responding to your question.
