Attorney Derek Bernstein here on a thirty second legal blast on grandparents rights today basically for a grandparent to get visitation rights both parents have to be either be dead or in a vegetative state or one parent must be dead missing or in a vegetative state and the other one has to be convicted of a felony or a violent offense that is a substantial threat to the harm of the child so if you’re afraid of your ex’s parents and you’re not a violent person with an offense there’s not much to be worried about in the state of Florida
