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.
