Sensitive Handling Of Termination Of Parental Rights Cases

Regardless of the situation or circumstances leading up to the event, the termination of parental rights is a very sensitive matter. When parental rights are terminated, this means that the parent no longer has the right to:

  • See their children
  • Raise their children
  • Contact their children
  • Discipline their children

This is a very serious matter and should be treated as such. These actions can even result in a new birth certificate being issued and the parent's name being completely removed. At Scroggins Family Law, our Texas family lawyers have seen this situation before and we understand the questions that individuals may have. We are here to compassionately answer them.

What Are The Grounds For Parental Rights Termination?

While there are times when parents may want to have their own rights terminated, the court may decide to terminate your rights for a number of reasons. If you are facing the termination of your rights, it is important to retain legal counsel as soon as possible.

Common reasons for termination of parental rights include, but are not limited to:

  • Engaging in an activity or leaving the child in a situation that endangers him or her
  • Leaving the child alone or with another person without support and having no intent to return
  • Abandoning the child without identifying him or her
  • Abandoning a pregnant mother or right after birth
