Family Law Attorney and Lawyer for Parental Rights
The Termination of Parental Rights is a serious matter. When a court Terminates Parental Rights, all future rights related to the child are lost forever. This includes inheritance rights, visitation rights, and child support, but not child support arrears. Termination of Parental Rights is one of the most serious legal actions that one can defend. The Department of Human Services (DHS) or an individual can initiate a Termination of Parental Rights proceeding. At the Law Offices Of Attorney John R. Reeves, P.C. we have represented many people over the years who have either sought to have Parental Rights Terminated or who have defended Termination of Parental Rights suits. We have also represented many people seeking to Terminate Parental Rights for the purpose of Adoption.
Parental Rights can be terminated for a number of reasons, including:
- Abuse or Neglect
- Failure to Maintain Contact with a Child
- Extreme Disinterest or Substantial Erosion of the Parent / Child Relationship
- Mental Illness or Deficiency
There are other reasons, as well. The Mississippi Supreme Court has issued many decisions which define the rights of parents and which also set standards for taking those rights away. It is critical that you have an experienced Parental Rights Attorney and an informed Parental Rights Lawyer to represent you in this very critical matter of terminating parental rights. One wrong move can cost you your case. At the Law Offices of Attorney John R. Reeves, P.C., we maintain up-to-date knowledge of all prior decisions of the Mississippi Supreme Court and we monitor those decisions as they are handed down. Staying up-to-date on the law is essential in a termination of parental rights case, whether you are defending or prosecuting the case.
