If you are a Florida grandparent who is not being permitted to visit with your grandchildren, you may have the right to assert your legal right to visit with your grandchildren in court. Grandparents in Florid have the ability to submit a legal petition to secure visitation rights under a variety of circumstances.
First, if a child was born to two unmarried parents, a grandparent can file a legal action to secure visitation rights. Let's say the mother of the child wants nothing to do with the biological father, but the father's paternity has already been established. The mother may be required to allow the grandparents to visit with their grandchildren if such a legal petition is successful.
