This is the first post in a series of articles which will address the topic of terminating parental rights in Las Vegas, Nevada. I feel it is necessary to address this topic due to the fact that many parents believe that a termination of their counterpart’s rights is necessary. It is also common for parents to need to defend against claims that their rights should be terminated even though such claims are not justified. The goal of my coming articles is to provide information which will assist people in better understanding their situation. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I will be addressing several topics over my coming articles. Some of the topics which I will address include:
- The voluntary termination of parental rights in Las Vegas or other Nevada cities
- The process of terminating your counterpart’s parental rights
- Defending against claims that your parental rights should be terminated
- Appealing the termination of parental rights
I feel it is necessary to address these topics for several reasons. First there are situations in which a parent may wish to voluntarily relinquish their rights. These can include situations in which one’s children are about to be adopted by their counterpart’s new significant other. These can also include situations in which one wishes to no longer pay child support. Second, it is important to understand the process one faces during a termination proceeding as understanding that process will help to ensure that one’s case proceeds in the best manner possible. Third, it is important to understand one’s options for defending against claims that their rights should be terminated. Finally, it is possible to appeal a decision regarding the termination of parental rights.
If you are a parent and are involved in a situation involving the termination of one’s rights then it is important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. The Nevada Supreme Court has referred to the termination of parental rights as “the civil death penalty.” By retaining counsel you help to ensure that you put yourself in the best possible position to obtain a favorable outcome.
