I am sorry to hear about this situation.
1) FDCF (CPS) has the right to stand as a custodian for any child born in Florida. It can try to do so if it feels that the child cannot be raised by the parents due to drugs, etc, but the Court would have to agree. So think of CPS as a potential "parent" who may file for custody.
2) If the mother agrees to give up her parental rights, and CPS feels that the father can raise the child on his own, then CPS will leave the matter alone, likely.
3) I am afraid you do not have "standing" (i.e. the ability to file suit) for the child because you are not related and the child would not have lived with you for a long period of time. However the grandmother may be able to take custody, OR, be appointed as guardian if CPS takes custody and places the child with the grandmother.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of THREE OR MORE STARS and then click FINISH to submit that rating, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating (it does not cost anything extra to rate).
