Also, grandparents can play a key role in caring and rising for their grandchildren. Like most people, we have fond memories of our grandparents and we are thankful for the important role they had our lives. Regrettably, in some situations, a parent will restrict or prohibit the visitation and contact rights of a child’s grandparents. And when this happens, grandparents should look for the aid of an experienced Florida family law attorney.


Grandparents and other family members have the right to file a petition with the court requesting visitation under Florida family law. But, if a grandparent can show it will be in the child’s best interests, a court will only grant visitation rights, and that there would be a important detriment to the child if visitation rights aren’t granted.

The court will consider many factors when determining if visitation will be in the best interests of the child, such as:

  •  The opinions of the parents, children and grandparent.
  • The capability of the grandparent to provide a nurturing and stable environment.
  • How involved the grandparent has been in the life of child.
  • The strength of the relationship the grandparent has with the child.
  • Whether the grandparents are able to provide an environment that will meet the needs of a child.
  • The child’s preference.

The grandparent must show that the child is in danger of being harmed or hurt in addition to proving that visitation is in the child’s best interest. For example, if the child’s parents have drug or alcohol abuse problems it could pose a danger to the child. Some other circumstances such as domestic violence, criminal activity and mental illness can also place the child in danger of being harmed and convince a court that custody or visitation rights should be given to grandparents and other family members.
