Grandparent’s Rights

While grandparents do not have statutory rights to visitation with their grandchildren in a dissolution of marriage action in Florida, they may privately petition the family court for temporary custody of a grandchild if a parent is unfit or unable to care for the child. The grandparent may also be entitled to receive child support payments from each biological parent during the period they are responsible for the care of their grandchildren.

You as grandparents may find yourselves in this type of custody situation related to your grandchildren, whether it is an action to terminate the biological parent’s rights or a “dependency” proceeding in which the ultimate goal is to reunite the children with their biological parents. Legal protections are afforded both you and your grandchildren, under Florida law. It is important that you work with an attorney who is experienced in these type of cases. Ms. Loftus can guide you through the legal process and provide you moral support as you navigate your way through the emotional and financial hardships that you may experience in this process.
