What are the legal ramifications to consider in showing up to see my child?

Q: Parental rights have been terminated. And the child is adopted. I just wanna see her. Isn't it up to the adoptive parent whether to let me see the child???

A: David Bliven's Answer: If your parental rights were terminated, then not only is it "up to the adotive parents" whether to allow any contact, but more importantly they must consider whether in doing so they may be committing child neglect themselves (i.e., they may risk having the child taken away from them, depending on the reasons why your rights were terminated). Moreover, you take the risk of them calling the police & you getting charged with tresspass if you "just show up."
