Customer Question

My partners family were very abusive to him and myself. They threatened my life and they physically attacked him. They have also cut him out of his own business with nothing and since then we have started afresh with no contact. My 7 year old step daughter came home from her mums (she lives primarily with us and visits her mum once every two weeks at the weekend for one night) and said that she was going to see them at her mum's house. We don't want them in any contact with my step daughter or ourselves. Can we stop them visiting at hers?
JA: Where are your partners? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: we live in leicestershire
JA: What steps have your partners taken so far?
Customer: we have cut contact and they don't know where we live. We have not yet spoken to her mother as we don't know what we are allowed to do
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: they played a big part in raising her and she does ask for them. Obviously we feel guilty but we think the short term discomfort will have long term gains. We're just unsure what rights everyone has

Is there anything else you feel is relevant to your question or anything else you would like to add before we continue?

Expert:  AlisonSolicitor replied 13 days ago.

Grandparents don't have an automatic legal right to see your partner's daughter if he or his ex-wife stops them from seeing her.

Do they have a court order preventing your partner's parents from seeing your stepdaughter?
