Sarasota Extended Family Custody Lawyer

Bradenton Grandparent Custody & Visitation Attorney

If you are concerned about the well-being of children you love, such as grandchildren, nieces or nephews, you may be interested in seeking custody arrangements that will provide a safe, nurturing environment. If a parent passes away, is experiencing health problems or is struggling with addiction, it is possible to seek temporary or permanent custody of children in court with the help of an experienced family law attorney.

At The Collins Law Group, we represent stepparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and extended family members in challenging custody matters, including those cases where termination of parental rights becomes an issue. Under Florida law, grandparents and other family members do not have inherent custodial rights. We can represent you in cases where:

  • One or both parents are unfit or unable to care for their children because of alcohol or drug use
  • A parent is experiencing serious mental health challenges
  • One parent or both parents have died or become incapacitated
  • A parent is incarcerated for a short or long period of time
  • A parent in the military is deployed and the other parent is unavailable to care for the child or children
