In Georgia, does an adult adoption terminate the biological's parent's parental rights? Will the adopted adult no longer be eligible for any inheritance benefits from biological parents?
If there is no guardianship pending, there are no parental rights over an adult child, except the right to inherit from the child. The biological parents rights are not terminated in an adult adoption, as opposed to the adoption of a minor child.
