This briefing aims to support MSPs with their constituency casework relating to contact between grandparents and their grandchildren. Specifically, the briefing explores the legal and policy background to the situation where grandparents would like to have contact with their grandchildren against the wishes of one (or both) of the parents.
Please note that SPICe can only provide general information relating to the law of Scotland. If a constituent wishes to receive legal advice in relation to the circumstances of his or her individual case he or she should contact a solicitor.
