Do I, being my nephews aunt, have rights? My sister signed her rights over to an adoption agency and the baby fathers rights have been terminated by court? Can i try and adopt my nephew or apply for permanet guardianship over him?
You really do not have any rights as a child's aunt. You can try to adopt but because your sister has signed over her rights to an adoption agency, you cannot apply for guardianship..... Please consult an adoption attorney.
