Terminating Parental Rights

Terminating Parental Rights

Parental rights are generally only terminated in two situations: (1) as part of an abuse and neglect case or (2) as part of an adoption case. Parents may not terminate their own parental rights in order to end a child support obligation or break off a parent child relationship. One parent may not terminate the other parent’s parental rights in order to end parenting time or for other reasons.
