Allowing such visitation would be totally at the discretion of the adopting parents. There is not a law that would force them to allow any relatives of the adopted child to continue a relationship. Grandparents as does any person that can is considered an "interested party" have the option to file for guardianship or adoption of the child if they so choose.

Do the biological paternal grandparents have visitation rights after a child has been adopted in Texas?

If the parents' rights have been terminated either by the court or voluntarily, and the child has been adopted, then the biological grandparents connection has also been severed and they can't seek access/visitation. However, there may be standing to intervene in the determination of custody BEFORE adoption has occurred. The only time grandparents are allowed to file suit for visitation is when there is a current, open suit for custody. Visitation is voluntary on the part of the adoptive parents if they believe that it is in the best interest of the child(ren).

After a child has been adopted do the adoptive parents have to let the maternal birth grandmother see the children. Court ordered all parental rights to be severed.?

No. Not unless the court ordered it. Due to the adoption you are now the LEGAL adult of the child therefore unless it was agreed an open adoption then no you dont. Once a child is adopted none of the biological family has ANY rights over the child you do. In most states, if the adoptive parents do not want grandparents to have visitation, the grandparents would need to file for visitation rights through the courts.

Do non adopted children have rights to grandparents estate?

Since this is the adoption category I assume you mean not the biological grandchildren but foster kids who have never been adopted. And no, they have no right at all to anything their foster family leaves behind unless they are mentioned in the will. If you mean biological children they inherit their parents who in their turn inherit their parents, your grandparents. So unless the grandchild is mentioned in the will or the parents are deceased, the grandchild will not inherit the grandparents.

How can you allow visitation by the biological father with his child who has been adopted by the spouse of the child's biological mother?

There are no laws that would prevent the child from vistation with her biological father as long as her custodial parents agree. The biological father has no legal grounds to seek vistation or custody if the adoption were done according to the laws of the state in which it occurred. Visitation must be voluntarily agreed to by the custodial parents and the child under the terms that they establish. The visitation rights can also be withdrawn by the custodial parent(s) if and whenever they so choose. It would be in the best interest of those involved for the custodial parents to establish guidelines (boundaries) before visitation is allowed.

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 relation, 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.

Can you lose visitation rights if you're not the biological father?

If you end a relationship with the child's mother you are not losing visitation rights, you never had visitation rights. Visitation rights are granted by a court. If you and the child's mother were married and you had a long term relationship with the child, or if there are half-siblings of that child (your children with whom you do have visitation rights) the court may award visitation rights. You need to consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues and who can review your situation and explain your options.On the other hand, you can get visitation rights by a court order if you had legally adopted the child.
