Family Rights to a Child in IL

The Illinois appellate court recently held that when parental rights are terminated, the rights and interests of the parent’s relatives are also severed and they have no rights to the child.  The lower court therefore properly struck grandparents’ response to foster parents’ petition for adoption of a child.  The case is In re the Adoption of S.G., No. 4-09-0912 (May 3, 2010, Ill. Ct. of App.).  Read the opinion here.
