Not a lot I'm afraid.

You do however, have an opportunity to influence a Sheriff if you consider that seeing your grandchildren is in the best interests of the child.

Courts always look to see what is in the best interests of the child and if parents are in any way negligent in their parental responsibilities (looking after the welfare of the child, schooling, looking after their emotional needs) then you can ask a Sheriff for for formal time with them.

Everything you need is contained in the Children (Scotland) Act 1995
