For most people, family law proceedings are stressful / an emotional process. You have separated from a spouse – you are now left to nut out the care arrangements for your kids (if you had them with your former spouse) and / or divvy up your property.
When parents separate, care arrangements for the children of the relationship or marriage are often negotiated amicably or orders are made with intervention from the Court.
When Orders or agreements are being negotiated by parents after separation, other important people in the child or children’s lives such as their grandparents are often overlooked.
You might have a falling out with your grandchild or grandchildren’s parents and are no longer able to spend time with or communicate with your grandchild/ren. Or god forbid the unthinkable happens and one or both of your grandchild’s parents passes leaving them without one or both of their parents.
