Termination of Parental Rights

Circumstances sometimes surface where a child’s best interests are served by terminating one or both parent’s parental rights. To terminate one’s parental rights, a petitioner must prove that one or more grounds recognized for the termination of parental rights exists and that termination of parental rights would be in the minor child’s best interests.

Terminating one’s parental rights has consequences for both the parents and the child in the areas of custody, visitation, child support, adoption, and inheritance rights.
