If the father signs over rights and the child is adopted by a step-dad does the biological father's family have rights to visitation?
the family NEVER has the legal right of visitation if not awarded specifically by a state court. Morally, if the intentions of visitation are simply for acknowlegement of rela…tion, then legal guardians(you) should discerningly, allow visits with blood relatives(them) under supervision of legal guardians(you). in other words, NO. ANSWER: Actually, in some states that isn't true. In Wisconsin there is a thing called Grandparent's Rights. This entails that the biological Grandparents are entitled to 1 weekend a month to see the child. I'm not sure what other states that applies in but it is something to look into to be sure of. (MORE)
