What can grandparents do if they are denied access to their grandchildren?
If you have attempted to resolve the situation through a calm discussion with the parents and have been unable to reach some sort of agreement, the next step would be mediation through an FDR (Family Dispute Resolution) provider.
If mediation is unsuccessful, you might be able to apply for a court order allowing access to your grandchildren through the Family Court. However, grandparents are not automatically entitled to apply for contact with their grandchildren unless there are special circumstances, so you will need the Court’s permission to make an application.
