Can grandparents open a child support case to establish support for their grandchild(ren)?

Under Florida law, if grandparents are substituting or taking the place of the parents, then they can go to court and ask the court to order the parents to pay child support. However, the grandchild has to be living with the grandparents, they have to be caring for the child at that moment, and they can ask the court to step in and have the parents pay child support.
