Grandparents Are Important In A Child’s Life
The relationships that are established between grandparents and their grandchildren are among the most special relationships either party will ever know. When parents divorce, however, the relationship can be placed in jeopardy. Since Florida law does not mandate visitation rights for grandparents, it is the parents’ decision to allow the grandparents to have access to the children.
At the law firm of The Holman Law Firm, we understand the difference a child’s relationship with his or her grandparents can make. We support grandparents’ rights, and we encourage the continuation of the grandparent-grandchild relationship after the divorce. Please call us at 850-316-8243 or toll free at 850-435-6909.
Seeking Workable Solutions For Florida Grandparents
While there is no specific provision in Florida family law for grandparents’ visitation rights, it does not mean that grandparents never get to see their grandchildren. In most Florida custody proceedings, both parents receive some level of parenting time. Many grandparents are able to enjoy visits during their children’s parenting time. If the parents object to giving the grandparents visitation rights, however, grandparents have no recourse under Florida law.
We know how upsetting it can be for grandparents who face the possibility of being permanently cut off from their grandchildren. Our lawyers will take the time to listen to your concerns and help you understand the law as it applies to your case. If there are any special circumstances that make it possible for you to pursue visitation rights, we will present the strongest possible argument to support your case.
