At LKW Solicitors, our experienced family law solicitors have a wealth of experience in helping clients with any issues concerning grandparents’ rights and parental responsibility agreements. We understand how difficult it can be to negotiate these matters and we are here to provide the advice, support and guidance you need throughout the process.
Grandparent rights refer to a grandparent's legal right to access their grandchildren either through contact or visitation rights. In Scotland there is no automatic right for a grandparent to be able to see their grandchildren, so if you are trying to get access it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
When parents separate, the issue of parental responsibility arises. This refers to the rights and responsibilities that parents have over their child as well as who makes decisions on behalf of them. It can include aspects such as medical care or religious upbringing. In some circumstances, grandparents may also acquire parental responsibility if they have been granted contact rights with their grandchildren.
At LKW Solicitors we understand how important it is for families to be able to maintain relationships – even when parents separate or divorce - and we strive to help our clients achieve this outcome whenever possible.
