Re: Adoption of grandchild

In the briefest form: in Switzerland, an adoption is absolute. In other words, from the Swiss perspective, adoption cannot be done half-way, or in any form such that it is valid here but not there, or under these circumstances but not those, or for this purpose but not for another.

This means that all the legal rights and obligations that were, between the parent giving the child up for adoption and the child to be adopted, are severed and cease fully. It follows, therefore, that the death of the former parent, after the adoption, has no legal bearing on the child who has already been adopted. In the place of the severed parent-child relationship, the adoptive parent and the child being adopted hold the full set of rights and obligations towards each other, exactly as fully as if the adoptive parent had been the biological parent.
