Response: If her parental rights have been terminated, her visitation rights would also be terminated because her visitation rights would stem from her rights as a parent. If those rights have been terminated, then she is no longer entitled to visitation rights unless the Court reverses the Order.

Best wishes,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

Thank you for your cooperation.
