Grandparents, Family & Friends

Grandparents often have a very special and close relationship with their grandchildren. Increasingly, and for various socio-economic reasons, grandparents are playing a greater and more crucial role in the lives of their children, including as co-carers or sole carers. Other family members and friends can find themselves in the same position.

We offer two bespoke sets of services for Grandparents, Family and Friends:

  • Creating Your Modern Family for Grandparents, Family & Friends and;
  • Resolving Modern Family Disputes for Grandparents, Family & Friends

Creating your Modern Family is about agreement and collaboration between you and people you love and trust. It is about what we can do to help you put your shared vision for your family into legal reality.


Resolving Modern Family Disputes

Resolving Modern Family Disputes for Grandparents, Family & Friends is about what to do when things don’t go as planned, for example if the birth parents don’t want the child to live with or stay with you or even see you.
