Does an adopted child have rights to the deceased birth mothers house and assets?

A legally adopted child is considered the parent's child just as much as if they had given birth to that child. So being adopted does not affect the rights or the heirship of the deceased parent's house and assets, even if they have biological children, as well. What does matter, is the state's laws regarding heirships with or without a will. You need to consult an attorney if there is no will to see what your rights are.

Can a parent with visitation rights kick the child out of the house?

In the US, the answer would be yes only if the question refers to whether or not the parent who has visitation rights can refuse to assert those rights and/or return the minor child to the primary custodial parent before visitation has formally ended. If the question refers to a parent forcing a minor to leave the residence without taking steps to insure his or her safety and well-being, then the answer would be absolutely not.

If a parent tells a child to get out of their house can that parent then call the child in as a runaway?

Well, they can but they would be lying. The parent is kicking them out of the house, the child is not running away; sooner or later the police (if the parent did call the child in as a runaway) would probably figure out the child did not runaway and the child was kicked out. If the parents kicked them out, then why would they call the child in as a missing if they didn't want them?

Custodial Rights?

There are many cases where a person’s custodial rights over a child are disputed. Divorce of two parents, the decease of a legal guardian, or inadequate parenting abilities all can place the decision of the custody of a child into the hands of a court. Unfortunately, custodial issues can prove to be very upsetting for the child in question, and because of this, all custodial rights disputes should be settled with as much speed as possible. Having a thorough knowledge of commonly accepted custodial rights is beneficial in expediting the legal process. Several factors are included in determining a parent’s child custody rights. In the case of a divorce, the court must determine whether or not each parent is eligible for physical custody. Physical custody is defined as the right of a parent to house the child in question at his or her abode. In joint physical custody, the child lives alternately at the separate homes of both of his or her parents. Depending on the court’s determination, the child might live primarily with one parent and only stay at the other parent’s house occasionally, or the child might spend equal time with both parties. A parent can also gain sole physical custody in which the other parent is only granted visitation rights or is completely barred from the child’s presence. Sole physical custody is oftentimes granted to a parent when the other parent has been determined to be dangerous or detrimental to the child’s welfare. In order for a parent to regain some physical custody, the parent must prove to the court that he or she has permanently changed his or her ways and that the child would be completely safe under the parent’s care. Custodial rights are approached in a very different way when dealing with the adoption of a child. After the decease of a child’s parents, the court must decide which of the child’s relatives is most eligible to assume the child’s care. The court undergoes extensive legal procedures and investigations to determine whether or not a prospective guardian would be suitable to look after the child. Finally, custodial rights might be disputed if a parent has displayed inadequate parenting skills. A court can mandate that the parent lose his or her custody rights if it appears that the child’s welfare is endangered under the parent’s care. In order to keep custody of his or her child, the parent must prove that he or she is a responsible guardian of the child.
