    Hi, do great-grandparents on the mother's side have rights to take you to family court to see the children?

    Technically, anyone that can meet the threshold of being adequately concerned with the child's care, welfare or development can apply to the court for parenting orders, but most of these applications are either settled by consent, dismissed or ordered as "That the child spend time with the great-grandparents at times as agreed by the parties".
