Good evening and thank you for the question.
I am very sorry to hear that you are going through such a frustrating situation.
First off, let's talk jurisdiction. If she is going to take you to court, she will have to do it in Florida, in your county of residence (assuming that is the court that made the guardianship order). Therefore, she will have to fight on your home turf.
Secondly, the court will presume that you are making decisions that are in the best interest of the child
. Therefore, in order to be granted visitation rights, the grandmother will have to show that it is in the child's best interest for her to have visitation with the child. You can just show that the grandmother's intrusions were very disruptive, etc.
Finally, as for the adoption, this would also have to occur in FL. If the parents consent, then she would have a good chance on having the adoption granted. As guardian however, the court may allow you argue against it. Also, the court would probably appoint an attorney to represent the interests of the child. If you could show that uprooting the child from your home would cause the emotional damage, then you would have a very good case to show that the adoption would not be in the best interest of the child.
