Well leagally your daughter is your responsibility untll she is 18 so, I guess it works the same but if you support your daughters kid then you basically do have the rights don't you?

AnswerIn most states Grandparents have many rights to their Grandchildren. So much so they have created laws to help protect our rights. I am raising my 16 year old daughter and helping by supporting my 4 month old Grandson both financially and emotionally. I have often thought about what I would do if something happened and I did not have access to seeing or being around him. I am going to check with the Court House regarding the laws of my state as to what rights I do have with my daughter living in my house and for the future when she chooses not to. Thankfully, I am a very supportive mother to my child and even though this was not planned my daughter is so blessed to have her son and would not change any decisions that she has made up to this time. Also, the father of the child is in the picture and we are at this time figuring out child support and visitation. He is a good person and I am also thankful for him being in his son's life. AnswerI just want to add a personal opinion. It was two months after my 15th b-day when i gave birth to my daughter. I lived at home until i finished highschool and both me and my parents say that i took soul responsibility for my child but also i could not have gone to school and have a part time job and still be able to drop off and pick up my child from daycare everyday if i did not have my parents support. i tell them often now that i could not have done it with out them. I still needed to beable to be my parents child and feel loved in this manner from them. I could not have been able to financially support myself on my part time job and still find time to be a single mother and a student. You are the only one who knows how many hours you are babysitting or parenting. i did not go to parties and hang out with my friends after school but i was on the swim team which i lettered in and i worked as a CNA on a work release program that my school offered. I did move out within two months of graduating from highschool because i felt that i need to be a parent and support my child but my mother always saw me as a child herself and found a lot of things that she would do different. But all and all in the end i raised her from 3 on living on are own and she is now a well rounded, well adjusted nine year old who does very well in school and has a great personality, very helpful and caring. you need to separate in your own mind if you are just not seeing what your daughter really is doing or if you are raising her child for her. you can adopt the child by going through leagel services if she is not doing it herself but remember she still sees herself as your little girl regardless and that may expain some of her immaturity towards you. Answeru can fight her for custody if u support the baby and she doesnt do anything even if she is 14 she still has to care for her child and if she doesnt then somebody has to and if dhs finds out she doesnt she can have the baby taken away so it would be in the babys best interest to get custody
