The basics of limiting grandparent visitation

In the state of Florida and other parts of the U.S., laws are on the books that permit grandparent visitations. While these laws vary from state to state, it is typically required that grandparents ask a court for the right to continue their relationships with their grandchildren. Parents have the most say when it comes to determining the stipulations of these visits.

Procedure when parents miss visitation time

Custodial parents in Florida may wonder what happens if the non-custodial parent does not take the designated parenting time that they are assigned. This can be frustrating for the custodial parent, and as a result, they may return to court and try to get the visitation time modified. However, some experts point out that this may not be in the best interests of the child. Rather than taking steps to increase the separation even more, it is better if the custodial parent is able to work toward solutions that will keep the other parent involved in the child's life.

If a grandparent is awarded visitation, what are the rules?

Florida grandparents may be awarded legal visitation rights if they are unable to work the issues out with the parents directly. When the court becomes involved in a grandparents' rights case, there are certain rules that must be followed by the grandparents and the child's parents or legal guardians.
