Visitation rights for grandparents isn't automatically granted in Alaska, but state divorce laws allow grandparents to petition for child visitation. The Alaska divorce court will grant grandparent visitation if it's considered to be in the best interest of the child.
If the child has been adopted, any grandparent visitation rights are terminated unless the adoption decree specifically provides for visitation between the child and his or her natural grandparents.
