source It became clear that my sons relationship with his wife was breaking down and that they were going to separate. We still continued to see our granddaughter regularly ,we were part of her life for 7years.
اسعار اسهم شركة اركان لمواد البناء I am not sure at what point communication started to breakdown, it just seem to happen, until over night my ex daughter in law said that we would no longer be part of our granddaughters life.
And that was that.
We were all devastated , heartbroken and at a complete loss as what to do. Supporting our son was paramount, as he to had been told that he would not be seeing his daughter again. Needless to say he was broken man.
We survived, somehow, supporting each other.
I made a decision that I was not going to sink in this misery, and that my granddaughter would expect me to be proactive and so Bristol Grandparents Support Group began to unfold. When these dreadful things happen in your life, you suddenly become an expert, researching, reading , getting any information you can about the issue you are dealing with.
I discovered that there are over one million children in the UK who are denied contact with their grandparents due to family breakdown. Family breakdown can be due to a variety of reasons it can be separation/divorce, alcohol/drug abuse, domestic violence, bereavement or family feud.
So I reasoned that there must be large numbers of grandparents going through exactly the same thing as we were. But how to reach them?
I wrote to my local paper, radio station and TV. Nothing.
I wasn’t going to give up, it became clear that there are many reasons why grandparents won’t put their head above the parapet, it could be that they are going through a court case to get contact or that they are terrified of making a bad situation worse and actually some feel ashamed. Ashamed because as a grandparent you think you should be able to make it right but you can’t.
I wasn’t going to be put off so I wrote a letter again to my local paper, with a title, ‘Tea and Cake for the Grandchildren,’ inviting denied contact grandparents to come to my house for a cuppa and a chat. It worked. Grandparents started getting in touch.
Maybe it was the offer of cake!!
The group has grown and continues to grow, I give support over the phone, by email and we meet every other month. I have been to date contacted by hundreds of grandparents. The first question is always, “Do I have any rights to see my grandchildren.?” The answer is no. You have no automatic legal right to see your grandchildren.
If you decide to go down the legal route, (something I don’t advise), at present you have to apply twice to the court . Firstly you apply for leave to apply for a contact order, if granted you then apply for contact.
The reality is that if you are granted an order, if the resident parent chooses not to turn up at the agreed time and place you are back to square one and back to court.
The government have said that they will take away the need to apply for leave, but not in force at the time of writing this. I doubt that it will in fact make a difference, Scotland removed the need to apply for leave several years with little effect.
All is not lost, I have a number of grandparents who have regained contact with their grandchildren, and that is what we are all striving for.
Just to be part of their lives.
For me the dream is not over.
