Termination Of Parental Rights In California
We believe that adoption saves a child’s life.
Reasons A Parent’s Rights Can Be Terminated
Parental rights can also be terminated through a Dependency Court action. A child is brought to the attention of the dependency court typically by neglect or abuse.
Determination of Presumed Parent
The presumed father is the legal father of the child. This father is either married to the birth mother or his name is on the baby’s birth certificate. Sometimes he is not the biological father of the child. Likewise, a presumed mother can be established (though it is less common) by a court of law, and she would be entitled to the same claim.The consent of a presumed father makes adoption by a new parent easier, but it is not necessary. The court can terminate parental rights of any parent if sufficient legal grounds are met. Presumed fathers must be notified; however, if they do not respond, the Court can move forward.
