Take the actions you believe are necessary.

There are two types of termination when it comes to parental rights: voluntary and involuntary. These types are very straightforward. Voluntary parental termination is when a parent agrees to terminate their rights to a child. Then, the parent will sign various forms and then go to court to testify. They will testify, saying they are terminating their rights to the child.

Furthermore, voluntary termination can apply to biological or adopted children. There are various reasons a parent may terminate their own parental rights. It all varies on the parent and the situation in the family.

On the other hand, there is an involuntary termination of rights. This occurs when the parent does not agree with the decision, and it is ruled by the court. Major reason a parent will have involuntary termination of rights include:

  • Abuse
  • Neglect
  • Abandonment
