    Default Can Grandparents Adopt if Bio Parents Give Up Their Rights

    Tennessee paternal grandparents want to adopt baby due in December.
    Mother and material grandparents are seeking adoption but feel they do not want us to adopt because it would not be "cutting ties" with baby
    father of baby (my son) is only 15 and at a loss. He knows he can't raise it but can not stand the thought of never knowing it. do we have any rights??

    No. Neither do the maternal grandparents.

    Your son, on the other hand, has the right to pursue legal establishment of paternity, and after paternity is established, he may pursue visitation.

    If your son intends to have a relationship with his child, he needs an attorney to help him protect - and exercise - his rights.
