My question involves grandparents rights in the State of: Florida.
My 17 year old daughter gave birth 4 months ago, we have had many problems and she even moved out of my house a month an a half ago (without the baby). The baby has lived in our home everyday since birth. My daughter is back now and until now my daughter was unwilling to give the baby to my husband and I, but now she would like to give us custody or guardianship. She says she would like us to have the baby until the baby turns 18. We are more then willing and capable of caring for our grandchild. Now I don't know how to go about doing this as well as the fact that I don't know if we need the baby's father to agree. The baby's father is not a fit parent and we feel that harm to the baby could be the result of things that the father does. Please help I only want what is best for my grandchild.
