“They are all exceptionally good at what they do – and understand the importance of the whole client experience.”

The Legal 500

Sadly it is a well-known fact that the breakdown of marriage or relationship can affect the goodwill that previously existed between spouses and extended family members, particularly grandparents. This can have an impact on your “grandparents rights”.

Grandparents often play a significant role in the upbringing and care of children in today’s society, particularly as more and more parents are having to work on a full-time or part-time basis. Tension following a breakdown of marriage can sometimes impact upon that relationship which can be upsetting for grandparents as well as the grandchildren themselves.

We can provide you with affordable advice as to applications that would be available to assist under the Children Act 1989.

How can we help?

Major Family Law is one of the best family law firms in the north east; we only specialise in matters relating to family law and we are experts in dealing with extended family disputes. We can provide you with guidance and advice around grandparents rights and plan your next steps to maintain contact with your grandchildren.

I’ve always been hugely impressed by Joanne Major’s drive, vision, and meticulous attention to detail. I’m not surprised, therefore, that Joanne and her dedicated team of lawyers and support staff have rapidly gained recognition as one of the most forward-looking, innovative, client-focussed family practices in the country.

Joanne Major has a wealth of collaborative experience. Her delivery is strong and confident with a no nonsense approach that I came to trust. This is invaluable when clarity and action is required. Major Family Law were highly recommended to me and I would have no hesitation to pass that recommendation on.

"Family lawyer of high calibre and drive"

Having worked with Joanne Major at a large commercial firm some years ago, I am aware she is a family lawyer of high calibre and drive. During a short period of time she has put together an excellent team of intelligent, approachable lawyers who deliver first rate family law services to clients. We as a firm are happy to recommend them.
