Learn About Terminating Parental Rights in Attorney Fagan’s New eBook
Termination of parental rights ends the legal relationship between a parent and their child. Once a parent’s rights have been terminated, their child may be placed for adoption so they can enjoy a better home and more suitable caretakers. That being said, termination can be voluntary or involuntary.
A parent could voluntarily relinquish their parental rights if they want to place their child for adoption. However, a parent’s rights may be involuntarily terminated under various circumstances, such as if the court finds a parent to be abusive or addicted to drugs. Due to the nature and impacts of involuntary termination, states generally impose strict guidelines for courts to adhere to, such as requiring judges to:
- Determine by clear and convincing evidence that the parent is unfit
- Determine whether ending the parent-child relationship is in the child’s best interests
Attorney Fagan firmly believes that parents who wish to voluntarily terminate their rights over their child should prepare for the process accordingly. With so much on the line, parents should have a clear understanding of the short-term and long-term impacts of their decision to voluntarily relinquish their rights. By the same token, a person who’s at risk of involuntarily losing their parental rights must know their legal rights and the strategies needed to protect the best interests of themselves and their children.
In his eBook, Attorney Fagan explains everything you need to know about termination of parental rights, whether it be voluntary or involuntarily. He shares critical information you need to know to navigate the process smoothly, discussing the laws, procedures, and challenges you may encounter along the way. Ending a parent-child relationship can be difficult, but this eBook on terminating parental rights can help bring some peace of mind.
