Good morning, thank you for your enquiry and patience. I am sorry to hear of your circumstances. If you feel that it is not in your grandson's best interests that he speaks to his grandfather then in the first instance you need to speak to his mother to advise that you do not agree with what she is doing and explain why you feel it is hurtful to her son. If she agrees mutually to stop then that would be the ideal situation, if she does not agree with your view and refuses you would have no option but to apply to court for a child arrangements order where you specify that whilst with his mother he is not to speak to the grandfather and attach a witness statement to the C100 form with all your reasons. The court will then decide. If you have not had mediation with the mother in the last 4 months you will need to mediate first before filing the application with the court. I hope this helps and all the best.
It does he is still a minor until 18.
