Wyoming Grandparents Rights in Divorce
Grandparent Rights to Visitation:
Visitation may be granted if the child's parents are divorced or if the Grandparents child has died and the person having custody of the grandchild has refused visitation. Visitation may also be granted when the child has resided with the grandparent for a period of at least six months before returning to the custody of the parents and the parents have refused visitation with the child. The court must find that the visitation is in the child's best interest and that the rights of the parents are not substantially impaired.
Title 20, Chapter 7, Section 20-7-101 (W.S.A. 20-7-101). (This is a fairly recent law, so you may have difficulty finding it. If so, ask the librarian for help. When the editors went to check this citation, it was listed in the index but the text of the statute could not be found.)

When Adoption Occurs:
Right terminates upon adoption if neither adopting parent is a natural parent of the child.
Child Custody Statutes:
Custody to be determined "...as appears most expedient and beneficial for the well-being of the children. The court shall consider the relative competency of both parents and no award of custody shall be made solely on the basis of gender of the parent." No other statutory factors.
W.S.A. 20-2-113.
