Parental Rights

Termination of Parental Rights

Learn more about the steps that are taken when you terminate your parental rights.

Each state has different time periods in which parental rights can be terminated. Once your rights have been terminated, you will no longer have any rights or obligations to the child and the child will no longer have any legal obligation to you.

After termination of parental rights, you shall retain no rights or privileges to have visitation or other contact with the child. The only exception is in cases of voluntary termination where there is a written pre-adoption agreement between you and the adoptive parents.

Our experience in over 20 years of doing adoptions is that these open adoption arrangements have worked well for both the birth mothers and adoptive couples.
