Once you are 18 years old, you are a legal adult, you have the right to live where you choose, and with whom you choose. What is the reason your parents do not want you to live with your grandparents?

Grandparents have no legal right to have custody over their grandchildren like parents do. Any relative have the same right to petition for custody if the parents are gone. If the parents are there they are the ones deciding where the child will live.Grandparents can have the right to petition for visitation though depending on which state they are in. That is something other relatives don't have. The laws differs on grandparents rights. The court usually don't go against parents wishes though.Another PerspectiveYou asked about grandchildren's rights to their grandparents. Unfortunately, the parents have the right to make decisions for their minor children. If the parents decide to keep their children from seeing their grandparents they may do so.

Not unless your grandparents are granted custody/guardianship by the court.

In most states parents can give signed permission for grandparents to adopt the children. So, yes, parents can surrender their right to the children legally.

There are no laws against searching but legally they are not their grandparents anymore. If they do succeed the choice to see the children is the adoptive parents.

I think the grandparents have more of a right then any other family member. I've heard about grandparents taking in their grandchildren if the parents do not want the children.

Yes. Grandparents don't have the right to block a custodial parent from moving out of town or state for a legitimate reason. This was tested in Arizona and the final decision was that the non-custodial parent's right to prevent the custodial parent from moving out of state does not extend to the grandparents.

Yes. The minor parents have the same rights over their child as adult parents do. The grandparents have no legal right to the grandchild.

No. Grandparents don't have rights, only what the parents allow them to. If living in a state where grandparents have the right to petition for visitation, there is also no contact allowed if the child is adopted away. All ties are cut with the previous family.

No, only parents or grandparents are mentioned in the custody rights laws of the different states and not always grandparents either. It's up to the court when you apply for custody.

They can try but they will not win unless you are unsuitable parents. Some states have laws regarding grandparents rights to see their grandchildren so they can win visitation right if you are in such state.

No.Legal Guardians are your Parents.Unless you are signed over to your grand parents, your parents have the right to take you in/out of a school.Sign for your license, or sign for a court case.All in which a grand parent can NOT do without LEGAL Custody. (:

If there are grandparents right laws where you live. Some states have them and then the court decides.

Only as much as the parents allow. In some states grandparents have the right to sue for visitation rights.

A teen parent living at home with their parents has the right and responsibility to raise their child and not leave it up to the grandparents to do it.

No. The spouse and children have the primary right. The grandparents may step in if there is no spouse and the children are minors.

Grandparents should have the right to have visitation rights because their grandchildren might want to see them. Also when the children have enjoyed a good relationship with their grandparents that is an important part of life and it shouldn't end if the parents divorce or one parent dies.

shes at her parents house.

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.

There are several tricks that can help with getting them to come over. 1) Guilt: If your parents and grandparents have the right to guilt you into doing the right thing, why should you be unable to return the favor. Convince your grandparents that you miss them and the only right thing for them to do is to come down and visit you. 2) Help Facilitate: Help your grandparent book a plane/train/bus ticket and a hotel room (if necessary). Make it less of a burden on them to find these resources. 3) Provide Other Incentives: Help make your grandparents' favorite food for when they arrive or do their favorite activity with them. Make them want to come over to your house for more than just to say "hi" and leave.

Legal right, no. However if living in the parents house under the parents rules absolutely they have the right to.

The grandparents have no right to the child, only the parents can decide about adoption. If she does not want custody the father can get it.

They don't have any automatic rights, but they do have the right to petition the court for visitation. However, if the child's parents are married then the grandparents can only petition under certain circumstances (ie the parents are separated, the child doesn't live with either parent, etc).

You need to consider how big your parents, and even grandparents, are. 100lbs sounds about right.
