Do I Have Rights As A Grandparent After My Child Divorces?

Grandparents and grandchildren have a very strong bond, which needs to be maintained. The Australian courts recognise this and give grandparents a way to seek time with their grandchildren if it is denied by a parent.

As a grandparent, it's important to maintain some kind of connection with your grandchildren. The best ways to do this if you have been deprived of that connection are:

- Contacting one of the parents, preferably your own child
- Establishing some sort of ongoing relationship with that child either by an ongoing arrangement with the parent or by some kind of mediation
- If neither of these things is possible or continues to be denied, the best course of action is to lodge an application with the Family Law Court of Australia.
