Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, Welcome to JA. I’m Vineet, a UK qualified & practicing Solicitor and I will be dealing with your case today.
If you and your partner no longer together, then you need to make arrangements order regarding your daughter.
You and your ex-partner can avoid going to court hearings if you mutually agree on:
where the children will live
how much time they’ll spend with each parent
how you’ll financially support your children
You can agree on child maintenance at the same time
If you both are not agreeing on the child arrangement conditions, you can go for a mediation service to get help in preparing to make arrangements and reaching an agreement with your partner.
So, if you and your partner do not agree on where the children live, their custody & contact, and financial support you can take the help of a mediator, local citizen Advice Bureau.
If you are not able to reach an agreement mutually or with the help of a mediator, you can apply to the court to decide and make a child arrangement order.
However, You must show you’ve attended a meeting to see if mediation is right for you before applying to a court.
and Regarding the grandmother`s rights -
Only people with parental responsibility, for example, parents, step-parents or guardians can make an application for a Contact Order. Whilst grandparents rights are limited they can, however, apply for permission (leave) to apply for a Contact Order and the courts will consider the following:
they can apply for a Contact Order through the court to gain access to your grandchildren by filling C100 application form.
