Divorce laws don't automatically grant child visitation rights to grandparents, but grandparents can petition for visitation rights.
Grandparents may intervene in any action regarding child custody when parents are filing for divorce, parental rights are being terminated, courts are deciding visitation rights or a blood relative or stepparent is adopting the child.
The grandparent's visitation rights don't terminate as long as the adoption is by a blood relative of the child or the child's stepparent.
