Severing parental rights ends the parent-child relationship legally. A Court Order is required to terminate parental rights, whether voluntarily or involuntarily. There must be convincing evidence in at least one of several factors. 


In some cases, it is in the best interest of the child in order to protect his or her mental and physical well-being. In other cases, termination of parental rights is necessary in order for the spouse of one parent to be able to adopt the child. There are instances of parent abandonment and one parent does not offer any contact or support for the child.


In any case, we will consider your circumstances and guide you through the process. 


Call our office for a consultation.
