Reasons to terminate parental rights
The termination of parental rights becomes an extremely important step when it comes to the adoption of a child. In order for anyone to legally adopt a child, the parental rights of the biological parents must be terminated by order of the court. This can happen either voluntarily or involuntarily, depending on the situation.
In other cases, the parent may be using his or her parental rights to the detriment of the child, and parental rights need to be terminated for the sake of the child's safety. These cases are almost always involuntary and need to be pursued by the other parent, another family member, or a state agency such as DCS (formerly known as CPS).
