10. GRANDPARENT CASES
Grandparents in Parenting Cases
The grandparents have a right to apply for Court Orders relating to the parenting of the grandchildren where the parents of such children are unsuitable for medical or other reasons to care for them.
The Courts can make orders for the grandparents to take on the parenting role of the children in such circumstances, or the Court can make Orders that regulate the role of a grandparent in a child’s life, such as providing for a child to spend time with a grandparent.
If a Court orders it, then normally, the time spent by the grandparents with their grandchildren would be a time that is not inconvenient to the children and the children’s parents. However, the Courts would also look at the disruption to any children’s activities, including sporting, educational and extra-curricular activities, to determine if the time spent with the grandparents is feasible.
The wishes of the children, especially those of teenage children, will be considered.Request Evaluation
Other significant family members do not have the same rights as grandparents in seeking time with their nieces, nephews, and other family children. However, if other significant family members or even sometimes family friends have had a large involvement in the upbringing of the children and if the parents, grandparents, or other family members are not suitable to parent the children, then those family members or friends may apply to the Court for Orders relating to the parenting of the children.
