Terminating parental rights is never a matter to be taken lightly. This is never an easy process and it requires careful consideration. However, there are good reasons why it may be in the best interest of the child.
Chris Meyer Law Firm understand the issues involving termination and is prepared to handle the matter with knowledge and sensitivity. There are times when this is done voluntarily, such as with an agreed adoption. But there are also times when this becomes necessary for other reasons:
A paternity conclusion may result from test errors or proclamations made in ignorance. Terminating parental rights in these cases removes child support obligation but also any parenting rights. However, it is a necessary step if the true biological father wants to establish the same rights.
Neglect, abuse, and other horrifying situations often leave no choice but involuntarily terminate another parent’s rights. While this is only successful in the most extreme cases, we can discuss your situation thoroughly to see if it is appropriate in your matter
