Mrs Margaret Vivian of Dunston Village Lincoln
is being forced to sell her house at 76 to pay court ordered
Mrs Vivian has a long bitter dispute with her
daughter-in-law over contact with her grandchildren which
has cost her thousands of pounds, leaving her penniless.
Margaret's son Bill was killed in his RAF fighter
jet along with his navigator over the North Sea in 1998 and
claims she and Bill each put up half of the money for the
house they moved into with her son and daughter-in-law and
Her daughter in-in-law denies this, and claims
they took Margaret in out of the goodness of her heart. And
is claiming two thirds of the house, and trying to force a
sale, claiming £4,563.40 court awarded costs in trying
to get contact with her grandchildren, if successful it will
put Margaret out of her house after ten years. There was no
formal agreement between Margaret and her son, only a mothers
"Bill must be turning over in his grave
at this" says Margaret, we were always a trusting family
as Bill was an Officer and a gentleman well thought of in
Margaret has been proven in court to be a loving
caring granny but still refused contact with her grandson
and has been fined for asking about him at school. There is
now a granddaughter whom she has never seen.
The law does not consider grandparents relevant
people in cases regarding grandchildren. "There is no
justice in these court proceedings, I have been treated dreadfully
by the judges" says Margaret.
Now Margaret must appear in Lincoln Court on
the 15th of September to have her house sold under her and
the money taken from her leftovers.
Grandparents Apart Self Help Group Scotland
has supported Margaret for a few years and travelled down
to support her in a Court appearance when she was going through
a real bad patch and suicidal, we continue to support her.
Jimmy Deuchars the group's chairperson says "it is awful
in a supposed caring society that there is no support for
a frightened frail old lady any closer to Lincoln than Scotland"
