Unfortunately, many grandparents are denied access to their grandchildren as a result of separation and divorce.

Grandparents do not have automatic rights to contact with their grandchildren but the good news is that the courts are willing to recognise the importance of the role of grandparents in the lives of their grandchildren. It is rare for the courts to deny access to grandparents unless the safety and welfare of the child is at risk.

Depending upon the grandparents’ connection with the child, it is possible for them to apply for permission to make applications for Contact or Residence Orders.

In such circumstances it is vital that the legal advice you receive is effective because you will need to convince the court that your existing relationship with your grandchild is meaningful and significantly benefits the child’s life.

Excellent, professional and caring. Michaela and her colleagues made the whole process very easy.

Ms A

I have been using McHale and Co for both the sake of my property and the purchase of my new home. Joy handled my sale and was extremely professional, helpful and persevered when dealing with my buyers solicitors who were less than professional to deal with.
Phillippa was equally professional and extremely knowledgeable on purchasing new build properties due to her years of experience in this specialist area. She was supportive and gave me confidence that I was getting a first class service. Would use them again and recommend to my friends and family.

Ms. S

…in the midst of the most stressful situations, I have never felt the need to ‘nudge’ or urge action, I have always been confident in the reliability and consistency in the service received, especially from Liz Connolly.

Extremely satisfied, I have already recommended. I first used the Will drafting service – Helen Green – then probate… clearly happy!
