Experienced Legal Counsel Is Vital In Termination Of Parental Rights Matters
The termination of parental rights is a very complex and emotionally charged legal matter. As the name indicates, it involves the permanent removal of a person’s rights with regard to his or her children. In most instances, these cases are initiated in order to ensure the safety of the children or to clear the way for a step-parent adoption.
In any event, these proceedings have the potential to become quite complex and contentious. It is important that you have a reliable attorney by your side who will fight for your children’s best interests. At The Law Offices of Abbott & Abbott P.C., we represent clients on all sides of these cases. Whether acting on behalf of the child, the parent seeking the termination of rights or the parent fighting the termination of rights, we provide the representation you need.
Grounds For The Termination Of Parental Rights
Many of the termination cases we handle involve ensuring the safety of a child. If the custodial parent has a history of child abuse or is a known drug user, we can help you take steps to terminate parental rights based on an unsafe living environment. In addition, if you have remarried and you can demonstrate that the other parent has not been active in your child’s life, i.e., has not communicated with your child in over a year, and you want your new spouse to be able to adopt your child, we can help you through that process as well.
If you have been notified that your former spouse has initiated an action to terminate your parental rights, we are prepared to fight for you as well. We will present the strongest possible case on your behalf to show that you are a good parent. We will do everything in our power to preserve your rights and ensure that your access to your child is uninterrupted.
