Question: If a parent severs rights to their children and the state adopts them. can you request for any kind of visitation? What if one of the children was adopted by their blood grandmother, can you go to court and ask fort visitations?

Answer:

Generally, termination of parental rights removes any legal rights a parent has to their children. (A.R.S. 8-662, A.R.S. 8-663). You may request with the grandmother to see the child, but if she refuses then you will most likely not be able to. It may be in your best interest to contact an attorney to determine if it is possible to petition the court for parenting time.
