The Government understands the difficulties that some grandparents face in continuing relationships with their grandchildren following disputes arising from parental separation.

We wish to understand the outcome of the President of the Family Division’s consultation on recommendations for reforming how child arrangements cases are dealt with by the family court before deciding whether any specific proposals are needed in respect of child arrangements and grandparents. The Government will carefully consider those proposals when published.
