  • grandparent contact /open adoption by other grandparent

    What are the Montana State laws concerning grandparent visitation rights when the other grandparent adopts the grandchild?We want to see our grandchild and up untill now the other grandparent has refused to allow us to see him.

    The Montana laws will not address this because grandparent adopting means they are not longer a grandparent but a legal parent. I suggest that you get an attorney and go to court to seek visitation rights asap and if you believe it is appropriate, contest the adoption. It may be that the other grandparent should be a legal guardian and not an adoptive parent because once hte adoption occurs, the status changes to that of a parent legally and you can be deprived of rights, wheareas as a legal guardian, if things do not look right, you may be able to pursuse custody.
