Fallen out with Girlfriend's family

I have fallen out with the girlfriend’s family and they have stopped me from seeing her. I am only left to see her 3 hours at a weekend. Where do I stand?

I have fallen out with the girlfriend’s family and they have stopped me from seeing her.  I am only left to see her 3 hours at a weekend.  Where do I stand?

This is a Romeo and Juliet situation and the answer is simple.  If your girlfriend is under 18 the family can refuse to let her see you at all.  If she is over 18 it is her decision and the family legally have no say in whom she sees or what she does.  But thread carefully here. This should be worked out in a friendly way. Using the Law to force issues involving human relationships rarely delivers what you need.
