If you are planning to petition for the termination of parental rights, our team is here to help you navigate that process.
While many people would like to believe that no parent would ever abandon, abuse, or neglect their child, the truth is that many parents do. In these types of situations, there are good reasons for the remaining parent (or legal guardian, hopeful adoptive parent, protective agency, etc.) to seek termination of parental rights for the person in question. If you are thinking about petitioning the courts in this way, our team at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter can help. We have extensive experience in family law, and you can count on us to help you present your case.
As mentioned, there are a number of situations in which people seek termination of parental rights. One of the most common examples is when a custodial parent remarries, and the newly formed couple petition to terminate the other biological parent’s rights so that the new spouse/stepparent can adopt the child. Termination of parental rights may also be necessary as part of an adoption by two adoptive parents. This process is not limited to matters of adoption, however, and can also be initiated in situations where the parent has failed to support or has abandoned their child. Whatever situation you find yourself in, you can turn to our team at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter to help you navigate it smoothly and achieve the best possible outcome for the child in question.
We at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter are proud to serve the Matthews, North Carolina community, and we want to help you do what’s best for the children in your care. If you need help petitioning for the termination of parental rights, simply give us a call to consult with our experts.
