The right of grandparents to maintain contact with their
It is not only the parent who does not live with their children that has the right to maintain a fluid contact
with them, but also the grandparents...
Usually, they are not involved or named in the conventions held after the separation, being understood that
their daughter or son will allow them to enjoy the company of their grandchildren. But this is not always the case:
the grandparents of a child may be alienated not only by their daughter or son, but also their own grandson and
therefore, no one takes them to visit their grandchildren or they can go home without seeing them.
It can also happen that the son or daughter lives in another country. In these cases, the grandparents may be
the ones with the legal right to parent the children. To grow healthy, kids need the presence and emotional support
of their grandparents and they cannot be victimized by depriving them of their presence, just because their
children are divorced or in bad relationships with their own parents.
If there are no serious reasons that might affect the children, the grandparents can continue to maintain
contact with them. Remember that just the grandparents also have the obligation to pay alimony to their
grandchildren if their parents cannot and they have rights over them. It's good that they know and exercise this
right when they cannot make contact by other means.
