What are the grand parents right in Florida? My sister-in-law was found an unfit mother by the courts in 2005 when the baby was 3 months old. The father of the baby at that time was unknown. With DCF involded they found who the biological father was. During this whole time the maternal grandparents had guardianship over the baby. The father never had any interest in the baby of his own and we believe through much motivation of his mother chose to take custody. Now the baby is 2 and the father does not participate in any caregiving ,only his mother and her boyfriend on the weekends. During the week she is with her maternal grandparents. This agreement was between the grandparents and the father since all the paternal side is working during the week.
What rights do the maternal grandparent s have since they are really the primary caregivers? The baby is confused why she goes back and forth and cries and screams everytime she has to go back to the paternals granmothers house. :
