Putting the Best Interests of Children First

At Capetillo Law PLLC, we care about maintaining the relationships of parents and their children.

The process of ending a parent-child relationship is known as termination of parental rights. Our termination of parental rights lawyers in Dallas always work in the best interests of our clients and their children.

For more information about termination of parental rights, call (214) 506-0091 to schedule a consultation.

How Parental Rights Are Terminated

A court order is required to terminate parental rights. This can happen in a few ways. One parent can make the decision to voluntarily relinquish his or her parental rights. In this case, a parent can sign a voluntary relinquishment affidavit, which is then filed with the court. A judge will need to sign a court order for the rights to be terminated. In other situations, one parent may seek to have the other’s rights terminated.

Filing for Termination of Parental Rights

In many situations, such as when domestic violence or abuse are an issue, one parent may seek to have the parental rights of the other terminated for the safety and best interests of the child. In other situations, a person who is not the natural parent of the child may file a case for termination of parental rights.

A termination of parental rights case can be filed by:

  • A man who believes he is the father
  • A softer parent
  • A grandparent, uncle, aunt, or sibling
  • A designated managing conservator
  • Someone who lived with the child and parent
  • Someone with court-ordered visitation with the child

Terminating a parent’s rights can be complicated and requires an attorney with extensive knowledge of family law. Our termination of parental rights attorneys in Dallas can explain the law as it applies to your situation and petition the court on your behalf. We are available for same-day consultations and consultations are available after hours during the week and on Saturdays by appointment only.
