What are the legal rights of children to stay with step parents vs bio parents?
Answer . Unfortunately they don't, even when you are married. If the other parent has died, then you can apply to be guardian of the children, where you would then get righ…ts. Or if the other parent couldn't look after then children, the same could happen.
A stepparent is not considered a legal guardian. In some cases they should be and can be granted legal guardianship by the courts, but they are not automatically a legal anyth…ing. Legal guardianship is a separate issue. Stepparents are considered legal strangers to their stepchildren.

Yes. Whether parent or step-parent, they can ground you and it is not illegal. If you feel there is an injustice, talk about it calmly and make a good case for why it is unfai…r. But a step-parent in your life has the right to help you become a good person, and grounding is usually a punishment for something that was done that was wrong.
No, a step parent has no legal rights to the child. They can only get that through the court or adoption.
Yes. The parent loses any right to make decisions for the child orto administer any property belonging to the child. They may alsolose physical custody. The parent can request… a visitation scheduleif necessary. You should consult an attorney who can review thesituation and explain the type of guardianship and its consequencesunder the laws in your jurisdiction.
If your parent dies which was remarried does the biological children have any rights over the step parent or step children in regards to his belongings?
It depends if there was a will or not. Step-children have no rights to the estate of a step-parent unless specifically named in the will. If there was no will, the estate is t…ypically divided between the spouse and the children. Check the laws for your state or jurisdiction.
A parent is the biological or legally adoptive mother or father. If you have lost custody of your child you are still the child's parent in that sense. If you have allowed you…r child to be legally adopted you may not be in their life but you are still their parent in that sense. In a legal sense you can no longer make any decisions for the child and have no parental rights.
A step-parent does not have any legal rights over the step-children.
Does a step parent have the legal right to refuse visitation if under false allegations from step children?
I assume it's not the step parent that is granted visitation. This is something the step parent and spouse have to work out since it's the spouse who has asked for visitation …and therefor it's her responsibility to make it work. If the step parent own the house he can choose who's in it and who is not and same goes for the spouse if she owns it. The step parent have no authority over the visitation order.
No but it is the decent, ethical and right thing to do. Just put yourself in their position. I'm sure you would like to know too. And they are entitled to their inheritance.
it really depends on what the step parent is like. my father was horrible and my half brother and sister had to grow up with him shouting at them all the time. our mum broke u…p with him and she has a new partner. this one is really nice and we are starting to build our confidence. let ther children.
Legally step parents have no legal rights regarding the child. That is an issue the parents of the child decide.
For a step parent to have parental rights over the step child they would have to adopt.
No they do not. In a case like this I would contact the adoptive parents and ask if it was OK.
