At The Mathews Group, LC, our lawyers provide compassionate assistance for clients who are seeking to terminate a biological parent's rights. This action may be appropriate in cases where the biological parent is no longer a part of the child's life. Termination of parental rights can clear the way for the child's adoption by a loving stepparent or relative.

When Can a Biological Parent's Rights Be Terminated?

A parent's rights can be terminated in one of two ways:

  • Voluntary relinquishment: The relinquishment of parental rights must be in writing and acknowledged before a judge or an officer authorized to take acknowledgments.
  • Involuntary relinquishment: The natural parent's rights may be terminated on several grounds, such as abandonment without financial or emotional support for six months.

In deciding whether to terminate the rights of a parent involuntarily, the court will give primary consideration to the best interests of the child. Once a parent's rights are terminated, he or she will not have visitation rights and will not be required to pay child support.
