As a grandparent, you share a strong, emotional bond with your grandchildren. That's why we fight for Grandparent rights in Florida, Grandparents have no rights to parental responsibility, time sharing and / or custody of their grandchildren in the state of Florida. Florida courts will enter orders granting Grandparents temporary custody of children under certain limited circumstances, such as abuse and/or neglect. Otherwise, they will dismiss a case filed by Grandparents for parental responsibility, time sharing and / or custody, as an infringement on the constitutional rights of the parents to rear their children without intrusion.
It is unfortunate their are no custodial Grandparent rights in Florida. That is why Grandparents should foster a loving relationship with their children and their spouses, even if they disagree with them. Parents on the other hand, should acknowledge the special role of grandparents and recognize that grandparents create memories and experiences for their children that will be with them for the rest of their lives.
At Segarra & Associates, P.A., we understand that grandparents must often exercise their rights for the safety and well being of their grandchildren. We believe that a strong relationship between grandparent and grandchild is important for the growth of a child, and we can assist you in communicating to the court what you believe to be best for the child.
