What Are My Parental Rights?
Parents have the right to make important decisions for their children. While a child’s natural parents are initially given equal parental rights, this can change in event of a divorce, separation or modification of the parent-child relationship. In some cases, parental rights can also be awarded to other family members or adoptive parents, foster parents, or legal guardians. In determining the rights of a particular parent and rendering a decision, courts will give a lot of consideration to best interest of the child.
Common parental rights include:
- Child Support and custody
- Visitation and access rights
- Making medical, educational and legal decisions
- Right to determine the residence of the child
- Child’s moral and religious upbringing
What If I Want to Terminate My Parental Rights?
The rights of a parent can be ended through both implicit and explicit means. When the paternity of a child has not been legally determined, the father has no parental rights. A parent’s rights can also be terminated in situations containing abuse, addiction, neglect, mental illness, or incarceration. If they choose to, a parent can voluntarily surrender their parental rights. Giving a child up for adoption is an example of voluntarily terminating one’s parental rights.
Does Primary Custody Influence the Non-Custodial Parent’s Rights?
In cases where one parent is awarded primary custody of a child, the other parent will usually be able to retain part of their parental rights, such as their right to visit the child. When it comes to divorce and separation, it is vital that each parent fully understands their rights and responsibilities. If you are concerned about how your parental rights might be impacted by your divorce or child-custody case, you should immediately consult with our attorney to discuss your case and be informed of your options.
