I have recently and for the last 6 years dealing with this issue. I lost custody/permanent guardianship of my now 6 year old son. His paternal grandparents have custody/permanent guardiaship of him. Does this mean I have terminated my parentals rights? I was told by a judge in March that "You have no rights, You have no rights to this child." If I understand correctly, if I have no rights and they have permanent guardianship then I terminated my rights when I signed them custody.
