    If the child is under the Guardianship of the Minister (an order through the Youth Court of South Australia), is the Family Law Court able to hear a case as the grandmother is seeking contact with her grandchildren, and Families SA are making decisions to reduce and remove grandmother's contact.

    The child was placed with the grandmother for 6 years whilst under the Guardianship Board and then removed. There have been issues raised in regards to the children's safety, though no known investigation has confirmed any risks.

    What grandparents rights does the grandmother have to seek contact and a relationship with her grandchild? And can she do this through the Family Law Court to have and maintain the relationship?
