The Rights of the Natural Parents After an Adoption

If my child is adopted, what are my rights as a natural mother or father?

Visitation rights of a child's parents or former relatives are automatically terminated by the adoption of a child by a step-parent. However, the former grandparent of adopted child may still bring an action for visitation with the child over the objection of a natural parent and the new adoptive parent. The above only applies when the child is adopted by a step parent or grandparent. If the child has been adopted by anyone else, the parents of a dead parent may not be entitled to visitation rights with their grandchild.
