Orlando Grandparents' Rights Attorney
Can Grandparents Get Custody of Grandchildren?
Some grandparents are in the difficult position of having to care for their
grandchildren when the children’s parents should be doing so. Other
grandparents want to obtain
guardianship or temporary custody of their grandchildren because of substance abuse or mental health problems
affecting their own children. However, since Florida law gives limited
rights to grandparents, these problems often require the assistance of
a knowledgeable lawyer.
Grandparents may seek custody based on these factors:
- The parents have passed away.
- The parents are not considered fit to have custody.
- The parents consent to giving custody to the grandparents.
- The child has been living with the grandparent for at least one year, or longer.
If you are caring for your grandchild, or you believe you should be, our
firm can assist you. We are highly experienced in the area of
family law, having successfully handled many complex cases involving children and families.

How Do I Get Temporary Custody of My Grandchildren?
In Florida, grandparents can get temporary custody of a grandchild if the
parents sign a consent form, or if the grandchild's legal parents are
deemed "unfit" due to child abuse or neglect, substance abuse,
and/or mental illness.
