Mississippi Grandparent’s Rights

Grandparent Rights to Visitation: Visitation may be granted to the parents of a parent who is not awarded custody in a proceeding in Mississippi, to the parents of a parent whose parental rights have been terminated, or to the parents of a parent who has died. If the court finds that the grandparent of the child has established a viable relationship with the child and the parent or custodian of the child has unreasonably denied the grandparent visitation and that the visitation would be in the child’s best interest, any grandparent can file. Title 93, Section 93-16-1 (M.C. 93-16-1 et. seq.).

When Adoption Occurs: Visitation rights terminate upon adoption by anyone other than a stepparent or if one of the child’s adopted parents was related to the child by blood or-marriage before the adoption.

Child Custody Statutes: No statutory factors. Child may choose if at least 12 years of age. Court may require a custody plan from the parties. M.C. 93-13-1 et seq. and 93-23-1 et seq.

Parents May Choose: Yes
