The Courts will always take the best interest of the child into consideration and can mandate grandparent visitation as long as the grandparent’s petition meets certain requirements. Chapter 752 Grandparent Visitation Rights allows a grandparent/great-grandparent to file a petition seeking visitation with minor grandchildren under three circumstances —- when the parents are:
- Both parents are deceased, missing, or in a persistent vegetative state OR
- One parent is deceased, missing, or in a vegetative state AND
- The other parent has been convicted of a felony or an offense of violence evincing behavior that poses a substantial threat of harm to the minor child’s health or welfare
