Legal Solutions To Protect Your Child From An Unfit Parent
Termination of parental rights essentially ensures that the biological parent in question is considered to never have become the parent the child. It cuts off all parental rights and obligations for the child, including the inheritance rights of the child to the parent.
In some cases, the biological parent consents, such as situations where a family member or other party will adopt the child when the parent can no longer care for him or her. In other cases, however, the biological parent either hasn't consented or is fighting the termination.
These cases are extremely difficult as the judge will rarely cut off parental rights to a parent who is claiming to want to be in the child's life as Termination of Parental Rights is tantamount to a civil death sentence according to our Nevada Supreme Court. There must usually be evidence of abuse, abandonment or a pattern of such bad behavior that the child is endangered.
