Thank you very much thomas
Both biological parents would have had to be served with court papers from the grandmother. The grandmother would have to prove that both biological parents are unfit or an extraordinary circumstance exists to permit her to have custody. All of this would take awhile, so it is hard to believe that it happened as she says unless on a temporary basis due to a neglect case filed with social services or some other emergency.
This is a general response that should not be considered legal advice. No attorney-client relationship has been formed. Please speak with an attorney in more detail about your specific situation.
I'm assuming that your case was filed in Volusia County. If that is the case then you should be able to look up the case at www.clerk.org. Your mother was not likely to obtain custody of your children without you being served or being notified that there was a suit filed against you for such. If this did indeed happen, you need to retain an attorney as soon as possible.
