Grandparents Rights

It is important to be aware of the rights of grandparents regarding child adoption.

Grandparents Have Rights

When a divorce or separation takes place, all too often the parents of the non-custodial parent (i.e., the child's grandparents) are left out of the child's life.  In several states the rights of grandparents regarding their adopted or biologically born grandchild are protected by law.

For additional information regarding adoption law issues, please visit Adoption Laws and for additional help click on the links rights of the birth mother and birth father and the rights of the adopting family.
