Termination of Parental Rights
As its wording suggests, a termination of parental rights is the necessary and final resort to have one’s rights as a parent and legal relationship with their child revoked indefinitely for the purpose of your child’s benefit; which the courts consider as the paramount priority above all.
There are occasions, unfortunate as they are, that happen where the other parent does something that can’t only be characterized as irresponsible, but also morally indefensible to their child’s well-being.
- Sexual abuse
- Criminal solicitation
- Ongoing Demonstrable exposure to alcohol and controlled substances
Regardless if it’s the result of a divorce or a suit affecting the parent-child relationship (SAPCR); there’s no justification that can warrant such danger and abuse of a child, not the least of all yours.
We Can Help You Take Action
Texas law requires you to file a lawsuit and provide the required evidence listed in Chapter 6 of the Texas Family Code to convince the judge that a termination is the best course of action to serve the child’s best interests.
Also, bear in mind, even if the other parent were to surrender their rights voluntarily, the burden of proof would be yours, the standards are high and the process can be overwhelming if you’re alone.
