Grandparents can sometimes find themselves in a difficult situation where contact with their grandchildren has broken down. Currently, grandparents have no automatic rights for contact with grandchildren. However, they can make an application for contact under Section 8 of The Children Act 1989. Any application made by a party who does not hold parental responsibility for a child must seek permission of the Court for their application to be considered.
