Question: do I lose my rights to my child if a grandparent is apointed permanent guardian?
Answer: No, you don't. Not at all. In fact, one of the reasons that a court might appoint a permanent guardian is precisely because complete termination of parental rights would *not* serve the child's best interests. (A.R.S § 8-871(A)(4)). Moreover, even a "permanent" guardianship may be revoked upon a showing that the biological parent is now able and willing to care for his/her child. (A.R.S § 8-873(A)).
