What Is the Termination of Parental Rights?

In essence, the termination of parental rights is a legal process that involves ending the legal rights of a parent. This would eliminate their right to physical and legal child custody or visitation and would end their obligation to pay child support. The Nevada Supreme Court refers to this as the "civil death penalty." These cases are taken very seriously by the courts. If the termination of parental rights is uncontested, the process may go smoothly, but if the parent whose rights are being terminated contests the action, the burden of proof will be set to an extremely high standard.

The best interests of the child will be the primary factor the court will consider in a Las Vegas parental rights termination case. In assisting a parent with a case of this kind, our law firm will strive to gather the facts of the case and will present this logically to the court to seek a just outcome - whether you are a parent seeking to terminate the other parent's rights or need a strong defense in order to retain your parental rights.
