Can my boyfriends mom get rights to see our son if we don't allow it?

Asked about 1 year ago - Crestview, FL

My boyfriends mother has broken into my home once threatened to kill me ever time I see her! Ive had a restraining order against her that protected myself and our son. I actually went to jail for finally punching her because she just would not stop! Can she really get rights to see my son if neither of us want her to? we are not yet married. I know she can petition for rights but what is the likely hood she will receive rights?

    Answered . The courts have been pretty clear regarding grandparents rights. It is irrelevant that you and the father and not married at this time. Unless you are unfit, the courts see the biological parents as the final say as to who gets to visit their child.
