Grandparents protecting my ex
My ex (we share a daughter) is an alcoholic. We’ve had a child protection order before and she is now drinking again (daughters school reported it to social services this time). I’m applying for a residency order but my ex’s father is wealthy and is instructing his lawyers on his daughters behalf as she is far too drunk; she has even told me as much via text. Given that the grandparents do not have any parental responsibility is it even permissible for the solicitors to pretend the instructions are coming from my ex rather than her father?
As long as your ex gives permission to her solicitor for her father to instruct, I don't see there is anything you can do in this respect I'm afraid
