Answer 1 The same rights, unless a will states a differently. Answer 2 * In any US state it depends upon whether t…he person died intestate or if there was a valid Will. There are no laws that require a parent to leave any assets or property to children whether said children are biological or adopted. That being the case a parent(s) can legally exclude any or all children from a Will if they so choose. If the person dies without a Will the state's probate succession laws apply and adopted children are treated the same as biologcial children.
No, I don't believe so. A couple takes a child in and raises the child, with all the effort, trouble and expense, and then someone comes along and say, "Just kidding!" At a mi…nimum, they should have to pay for the cost of someone else raising their kid. And that won't begine to compensate for the emotional trauma to kid and parents.. If a child had a child and they were stolen by their grandmother based on lies no this is not fair.. Answer . No. the parents may a conscience desicision to give up all rights to their child. i understand some parents have to because they can not provide any of the basic needs for a child. but after they give a child up for adoption then the child doesnt belong to them anymore.. However i do believe that if the parents are capable to raise a child and under go evalutaion then they should be allowed have their child returned, if the child has not been adopted already.. it is a complex issue that tears the lives of so many.
children should definitely have the right to know of where they came from! now not at any younger age but once 18 they should have the right. the reason for an older age is be…cause they'll be emotionally prepared for the acceptance or rejection they may fall into. legal parents should have a way of contact , through an agency or something for things for updated medical records and such.
Yes. They Do. An adoptee has the same legal rights as if they were biological child in a court of law.
Yes, every child has the rights to find their biological parents. For an instance their health. It's for the child to decide, give them a chance to decide for themselves. Wh…en they are adults they can do as they wish but sometimes the biological parents don't want contact and can then take measure to prevent they meet.

No. When a child has been legally adopted the parental rights of the biological parents have been terminated and they have no rights regarding the child.
Yes, every child has a right to know the truth.
because some childrens parentsare bad people so some children dont want to know? ^^^^^^^^^^^^First of all, what do you know about adoptions and biological families. Who are …you to say that a parent is bad? Or decide that just because a child is adopted they should be labeled as bad parents. That is an immature and very cruel answer. A child LOSES EVERYTHING when ripped from their family. I was taken away and adopted by jerks. Had I contacted my mom she would have reported them and an investigation would have opened up against them. But I wasnt allowed to contact my family. Everyone said I was being dramatic. That I was crazy. Honey I am 17 years old now and I know I wasnt crazy. 10 years later I learn that all along it was them. Adopted children should have their own rights when it comes to contacting their family.
Well i want to know my parents because they brought me into this world and i love them no matter if they gave me up for a reason or not. I am just happy i wasnt one of the ma…ny abortions. Any more questions? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am an adopted child- so hear me out. You lost the right to know them when you gave them up. I appreciate very much that people care enough to give their child a better life… but it infuriates me when they try and mess up their new life. Keep the adoption closed tight. When my birthfather wanted to contact me- it complicated my life so so much. Just leave them be. They have families and you're not one of them
The laws of your local area will determine whether or not you are an heir - normally adopted children cannot inherit from their birth parents unless they are in a will because… your birth parents stopped being your parents during the adoption process, leaving no legal relationship to inherit through. However, some jurisdictions do make exception to that in various circumstances so that you may be able to inherit. A qualified lawyer practicing inheritance law in your local area will be able to tell you for sure.
Answer 1: Many adoptive kids do communicate with their birth mothers. Its common. Some birth mothers don't want to, and then they don't. Sometimes its just letters or sometime…s its face to face. Unfortunately , its not the adoptive child's decision on whether his birth mom or dad stays in the picture. Answer 2: It is a complex issue since there are good reasons to respect the privacy of biological parents who give up children for adoption, and also good reason why children should be allowed to communicate with their biological parents. Possibly the strongest argument in favor of such communication is that people often need to know the medical history of their parents in order to better understand the medical aspects of their own genetics. It is also true that everyone feels some need to know and understand their own family history, and without such knowledge a person has a uncomfortably rootless feeling. It would be very weird not even knowing what your actual ethnicity was (since some ethnic groups have a very similar appearance to others, and can't necessary be identified at a glance - and it becomes even trickier for people of mixed ethnicity). On the other side of this argument is the fact that if a woman has chosen to give up her child rather than raise it herself, she has a right to do that, and it is not fair to force motherhood upon her. She could, after all, have had an abortion instead, so we might appreciate her generosity in carrying the child through to term and giving birth, which is not an easy process. Sometimes, it is also generally embarrassing to be confronted by children whom one has given up for adoption. People then feel that they have to explain why they did not want to raise their own children, and generally that involves some admission of failure. People are sometimes too poor to take care of their own children, or have other problems which would make them unfit as parents. That is not a nice thing to have to admit. Maybe the woman in question is just antisocial and doesn't like children. Again, not a comfortable thing to admit. If biological parents cannot count on their own anonymity when giving up children for adoption, many will instead choose abortion. One never has to explain anything to an aborted fetus. They demand no explanations. So in satisfying your own curiosity, you may be doing a disservice to future generations of adoptable children who may not be born. So, in the end, there is no right or wrong answer; the issue is too complex for any simple solution.
Do adopted children have the right to know their biological parents and if so what are the pros and cons of it?
Yes they have a right to know. There are many Pro's like seeing what you actually look like beside them, meeting them for the first time, hearing their voices, spending time y…ou lost together. However there are many Cons like, people fake to be the right person, they don't want to know who you are, you look nothing like them, they have drug addiction, alcohol addiction anything. But it is better to find out than it just being a dream. Hope that is enough for you.
it all depends on what kind of adoption it was.. open adoption means that birth parents have a right to search for their kids and kids have a right to search for their parents…. but if its a closed or private adoption it means that some one (birth parents or adopted parents) don't want the child to find their birth parents... for that you would have to speak to a social worker or some one who is involved in the legal custody and adopted children...
Illegitimate children as opposed to adopted children, should be able to determine who their parents are.
