Step parents legal rights over a child that is not theirs biologically depends on the legal proceeding and the biological parents involvement. In general, step parents have no legal rights over a non-biological child unless they have legal custody.

General Step Parents Rights

Because a step parent is not biologically related to a child, she has no rights in regards to that child's placement, health or welfare. This does not mean that the step parent does not have an obligation to ensure that the child is well cared for, but rather that the step parent has no right to dictate who has access to the child. This means that the step parent cannot control another parent's or families involvement with the child.
