Depends on what state you live in. In VA Grandparents can have visitation rights just like a biological father, if they show they can and have cared for the child while in their care. ........................................................................................................................................ I live in Ohio and 4 yrs ago got grandparent visitation for my grandson. I had to have the mom and dad sign the papers and in doing that I didnt have to go to court which save money. I heard they changed the law since then but I am not 100% sure. Grandparents should have rights to see their grandbabies. We are an important part of their lives. Can you imagine your life without your grandparents??? I know I could not...........

They have rights if the step grandparent left a specific gift in their Will. However, if not mentioned in a Will they have no legal rights in a step grandparent's estate.


There are several but the rights and requirements differs between them. You can read more in the link below.


They can get visitation. Read more in the link below.


Yes, a grandparent, or another relative, can apply for guardianship if the parents' rights have been terminated or with the consent of the parents.


They can petition for visitation but their success depends on the circumstances. It would be easier of the parents agreed to it, of course. In West Virginia conditions for grandparent visitation rights include:consideration of whether a parent is deceased,the child has resided with the grandparent and subsequently was removed by a parent, orthe grandparent in several circumstances has been denied visitation by a parent.Adoption cuts off all visitation rights of grandparents. See related links.


Yes, if the other parent (who has parental rights) consents and it's a suitable arrangement. The grandparent would become the legal guardian.


Yes, grandparents have rights in Florida. You can hire a lawyer so that you can present your case during the custody hearing.


Yes, so long as the grandparent is able to care for the child and he/she has the permission or rights to take care of them as a guardian.

Legal Custody is different than Parental rights. The courts decides child visitation, etc. and parents could pay child support to grandparent. It is all up to the courts..

Unfortunately grandparents don't have many rights when it comes to adoption. I think an appeal of sorts can be put in, but I don't think there's much a grandparent can do to prevent adoption.


The court decides if he is allowed to terminate his parental rights. The custodial parent can then give custody to a grandparent if they wish. Both of you would then have3 to pay child support to the grandparent. Terminating parental rights does not get you out of paying for the child.

The grandparents should consult with an attorney. The factors considered in Minnesota for grandparent visitation rights include determination of whether one of the child's parents is deceased, or a parent has had his or her parental rights terminated. The court must also consider the relationship between the grandparent and grandchild. Adoption cuts off the visitation rights of grandparents unless the adoption is granted to a stepparent or a blood relative.See related link.The grandparents should consult with an attorney.

Whatever rights the custodial order stipulates. If there is no legal order of custody then the grandparent has no legal rights to the child even if one of the parents has requested it. The exception would be if returning the child to a parent(s) would constitute endangerment to that child. If such is the case, the grandparent should contact the state's child protective services for assistance.


With the custodial parents permission, they do not have any inherent rights to do so.



If you adopt your own grandparent then you will be your own great grandparent and things get confusing.


Your great aunt is not your great grandparent but she could be a great grandparent if she has children , grandchildren and great grandchildren.


ABSOLUTELY. However if the grandparent has visitation rights ordered by the court, it must be addressed immediately in the custodial court and the visitation may be modified or removed. Primary concern should always be the well being and safety of the child.


Well grandparents technically have no legal visitation rights so your not wanting it to happen is enough to make sure it doesnt...:)


This is a complicated issue and courts use the best interest of the child standard. There must be a preexisting and substantial relationship between the child and the grandparent and each parent's wishes will be given special weight by the court. The grandparent may need to join in a divorce proceeding or file an independent petition for visitation. Grandparents rights in New York are not explicit and the grandparent should consult with an attorney who specializes in family law.


A person with whom you share a great-great grandparent, but not a great grandparent, grandparent, or parent descended from that great-great grandparent, is your third cousin.


I am a grandparent when my daughter had a baby.
