Good morning, I was wondering if you could please help me? I have a 3 Yr old grandson who I have played a major roll in his life since birth. He looks to me for security and I have been the one to attend .out of his medical appointments since birth and now dentist. My son has always been verbal abusive and has a personality disorder. He is of a controlling nature and uses my grandson as a control over me. His aggressive behaviour has become no longer barnacle and we had to contact the police. He has threatened me with not seeing my grandson who is always present when he kicks off. He loves to be with me and I support him and was his bubble through covid lockdown. Can I get help to see my grandson if so how. Thank you for your time. Mrs Sands.

Hi there,

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:

  • The applicant’s connection with the child.

  • The nature of the application for contact.

  • Whether the application might be potentially harmful to the child’s well-being in any way.

You can apply for a Contact Order through the court to gain access to your grandchildren by filling C100 application form.

They can apply online by using the below web link-
