TERMINATION OF PARENTAL RIGHTS
Sometimes it is not in a child’s best interest for his or her biological parent to have visitation rights or otherwise be involved in important decisions for the child. In such cases, it may be in the child’s best interest to have that parent’s rights terminated.
In North Carolina, before those rights can be terminated, certain grounds must be stated and proven. However, grounds alone will not necessarily be sufficient to terminate a parent’s rights. The Court will weigh the evidence and determine if it is in the best interest of the child for the parent’s rights to be terminated.
If someone has been served with documents asking that their rights be terminated, Ferguson Law Firm can assist with that as well.
Termination of parental rights is an extreme legal measure requiring long-term, cautious, and careful consideration, but in those cases where it is the best thing for the child, Ferguson Law Firm has had success in terminating or preserving parental rights to serve the best interest of the child.
