Protecting Your Rights As Grandparents

When two parents decide to end their relationship, it can sometimes affect the relationships children have with their extended family. Generally speaking, it’s usually up to the parents to facilitate contact between grandparents and children. In some situations, though, that is not possible because one or both parents are unable or unwilling to facilitate that.

In other situations, grandparents may feel the need to become guardians in order to protect the children from poor parenting or unsafe home situations. At Long Family Law Group LLP, our family lawyers have extensive experience representing grandparents and other family members of importance to children.

Based in Edmonton, Alberta, we can help you understand your rights as grandparents, and how to pursue a healthy relationship with your grandchildren. We can assist you to negotiate an agreement through mediation with the parents, or support your position in court, if necessary.
