Grandparents’ Rights in Alberta

Grandparents’ Rights in Alberta

This booklet is for grandparents who want to know about their rights and options with respect to their grandchildren. For grandparents who are currently being, or are worried that they will be, denied access to their grandchildren, this booklet explains what is involved in obtaining access with your grandchildren through a “contact order”. For grandparents who are concerned about the safety and well-being of their grandchildren, this booklet outlines the various options that would enable those grandparents to care for those grandchildren. This booklet also provides link to grandparents’ organizations that can help with all aspects of these issues.

The information in this booklet is for general use only, not legal advice. It is not a do-it-yourself guide. For that, you need a more detailed self-help publication or legal advice. See the Where can I get more help? section for information on where to get this help.
