Stepparents' Rights Archives

The challenges of stepparent adoption

When you and your spouse married, you knew you were entering a complicated union. Your love was not limited to your spouse because he or she also had a child from a previous relationship. It may not have been your ideal situation, but the more time you spent together as a family, the more you wondered about the possibility of adopting your spouse's child as your own.

In loco parentis rights of grandparents

In Arizona and other states, courts have upheld the legal rights of grandparents when parental divorce threatens these grandparents' ongoing relationships with their grandchildren. Visitation rights granted to persons other than parents are described as 'in loco parentis" rights, derived from the Latin term meaning 'in place of parents." 'In loco parentis" is a broad term that applies to any legal relationship between a child and an adult that is not the child's parent.
