Legal Question in Family Law in Indiana

I gave up my children to my x-wife's husband about 20 years ago. Back in September of last year my daughter asked to move in with me with her daughter, my granddaughter. She stayed here until February of this year when we had a disagreement and she hasn't talked to me since. I have however started a relationship with my granddaughter's father and his family and he has been bringing her over every week to visit with us. I love her very much and just wondered where I stand as far as any visitation or if my daughter can do anything legally to stop me from seeing my granddaughter or if she can do anything to the father for letting me see her.

If by "giving up" you mean that your biological children were adopted by another man, than you have no legal rights in this situation. If the child's mother convinces a court that the child should not be around you, then you have no right to object if the father is ordered to avoid further contact between you and the child.
