Grandparents Rights

August 25, 2016 – at 4:02 am – by Bodekers Family Lawyers

Family Law in Australia recognises that grandparents are very special people in children’s lives and particularly when parents separate and/or divorce.

Raising children post separation is an important job and grandparents can and do help.

In some cases, one parent or even both may try to alienate their children from grandparents. They may try to stop the grandparents from spending time or having any contact at all with the grandchildren.

This usually is not in the childrens’ best interests. Unless there are risk factors and other special circumstances family law in Western Australia will want to ensure that children know and spend time with their grandparents.
