  • Are we still grandparents?

    Our grandchildren - ages 6 and 14 -have been in foster care for two years. Our son's ex-wife committed suicide in October and his parental rights were recently severed. Are we still the grandparents or is this relationship severed as well?

    William’s Answer

    I suggest you refer to Section 39.811(7)(a) which states that, "The termination of parental rights does not affect the rights of grandparents unless the court finds that continued visitation is not in the best interests of the child or that such visitation would interfere with the permanency goals for the child.
