Termination of Parental Rights

Parental rights are a given in our society. However, many family law procedures’ difficult job is to take those “given” rights and examine them to determine what will actually be in the best interest of the child. In some cases, termination of parental rights is necessary to either protect the child from adverse conditions at home or enable a new guardian or adoptive parent to assume parental rights instead. 

To clarify, reasons for the termination of parental rights may include… 

 

  • Adoption
  • Chronic or long-term illness or incapacitation of the parent
  • Inability to provide for the needs of the child
  • Incarceration or conviction of parent for a felony
  • Disability due to addiction or continued substance abuse
  • Ongoing neglect or abuse of child
  • Abandonment

Severance of parental rights can be either voluntary or involuntary. Even in the most amenable voluntary situations, though, there is extensive paperwork and important procedures to follow. It’s essential that you have an experienced legal advisor walking you through the process and ensuring that all of the important protections are in place.
