Do grandparents have custody and visitation rights in Florida?

The Florida Supreme Court has consistently held all statutes that have attempted to compel visitation or custody with grandparents based solely on the best interest of the child standard to be unconstitutional.

In cases of military deployment or assignment in excess of 90 days, Florida allows a parent with visitation rights to designate a family member, a stepparent, or a relative of the child by marriage to take on the time-sharing schedule on the parent’s behalf.
