Grandparents' Rights

“Children have the right to spend time on a regular basis with, and communicate on a regular basis with, both their parents and other people significant to their care, welfare and development (such as grandparents and other relatives)”
– Section 60B(2)(b) Family Law Act (1975)

Divorce or separation is an emotionally challenging time for parents and children, but it is also a challenging time for the grandparents in the family. The children’s grandparents, and other family members can also be affected by the separation and often require legal support to ensure their rights are addressed.

The Role Grandparents'

The role of Grandparents and the value they bring to the lives of their grandchildren

Under the Family Law Act 1975, children have a right to maintain regular contact with people who are important to their care and development, including their grandparents. However, this is not an automatic right.

The legal system and Courts appreciate the importance of grandparents in the lives of children. The degree to which grandparents can access their grandchildren is based on what is in the best interest of the child, which includes the nature of the relationship between grandparents and grandchild/ren and the parents and grandparents.
