Grandparent's Rights IN FLORIDA

The rights of a Grandparent to custody and visitation of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren is very limited in Florida.
A Grandparent’s Rights Bill is in the process of becoming law the Florida Legislature. After the last legislative session in 2015, the Bill went to the Governor’s desk for a decision.

HB 149 would allow grandparents the right to request visitation with their grand and great-grandchildren when a “dependency” case is in progress. A “dependency” case is an action taken by the Department of Children and Families in which children are removed from the home by the Department’s protective services.

According to the Bill, when a dependency case is in progress, the removed children’s grandparents would be allowed to file an action with the Court to be allowed to see their grandchildren.

Lisa York represented me in a criminal case. It was my first time being in trouble, so I really needed some help navigating the legal system and defending myself. Lisa was there for me every step of the way. She was really great about staying in touch with me to keep me updated on my case. I felt very comfortable about having her represent me because she knows many people in the local courts. Transparency in billing is another benefit."
