Q: What rights does a grandmother have to her grandchild in Florida if her son- father of the child was killed?
A: Assuming that the mother of the grandchild has custody, grandmother doesn't have any right regarding the grandchild.
A: A grandmother can always petition the court for custody or visitation rights of a grandchild, as an “interested party”. If your son was killed on the premises that lacked security, then you could bring a lawsuit as a guardian ad litem for the child to sue for the wrongful death of his father.
