In my case Great Grand children.My grandson wont let me have any thing to do with my great grandies, for years i have tried, they are now 10 8 and 18 months. I live in Helensville and they live in Palmerston North.I went to see him he couldnt give me a reason why but he has nothing to do with his maternal side of the family.I feel this is sad for the children.as they are the ones missing out.We are a law abiding family with no police history I just dont get it.I am getting older now and would love to meet my great grand children#1709707steph154370MemberMember since: August 12, 2018

my sympathies bazza. It must hurt for this to have happened. But as the children’s father , I would think that your grandson would have extra rights in this so long as he is the children’s legal guardian.Yes, it is hugely sad for the children.If you think it a possibility that you might have a legal right to see you great-grandchildren perhaps you could ask at a free legal advice service in your area. Even so, you don’t want to force the issue,thereby antagonising your grandson.Free legal advice would be able to help you sort out what is possible,at least.They may even know of a way to improve the situation. Worth a try.#1735532MrsQuilterMemberMember since: September 15, 2007

What a shame for all of you. Steph’s advice is spot on.
May I suggest you could also write little notes (which you don’t send) and buy wee gifts for birthdays and Christmas which you keep in a special box and ask your own legal adviser to make sure these are passed on to the children concerned (NOT their parents) on your demise.
That way they will always know, whatever they have been told, that you loved them and they were not forgotten or ignored. You may also like to leave a little token to each in your Will.
It’s a very sad situation but one which is, I fear, very common indeed.
