Can grandparents be awarded custody/time-sharing of their grandchild(ren) in Florida?

In Florida grandparents can be awarded custody and time-sharing of their grandchildren but typically in a very rare and limited circumstances. The courts will not force a parent to allow visitation with a grandparent, unless the parent is found to be unfit or neglectful, in which case the grandparent can be awarded custody of the child.
