Termination of Parental Rights (Juvenile Court)
What Is Termination of Parental Rights? What happens when the matter is in juvenile court?
Termination of parental rights is when the court orders one, or both, biological parents’ rights to their child to be removed (or terminated). This means that those parents are not able to make any decisions on behalf of that child, and they are also no longer afforded visitation. That child will be eligible for adoption.
When a termination of parental rights matter is in juvenile court, it is generally because the Department of Children & Families (DCF) petitioned the court for the termination of one or both parents. It is then then DCF’s burden to prove their case. Ultimately, if the parents do not consent to the termination of their rights, it is up to the judge to decide, through a trial what the outcome will be.
