    My son gave up his rights to his daughter in family court for too many reasons to explain here. However, I would like to know if we, as her "other grandparents", have any chance of being able to spend any time with her and gain visitation rights.

    Happy to start off with mum being present for as long as she feels is needed in a spot that is good for both of us.

    Have you contacted the mother directly about this?

    Grandparents have rights, or rather, the child has a right to have a meaningful relationship with the grandparents. Going about it? Hard work. Contact mum...Then contact relationships Australia.

    Then if that don't work, contact a solicitor... Sadly, at that point, you really need to think long and hard about the reward vs effort equation.

    Not happy help, I'm afraid.
