Termination of Parental Rights in Michigan

Legally ending the relationship between a child and his or her parent is a serious step.

In cases where there has been violence or abuse in the home, Child Protective Services (CPS) may ask a family court judge for a termination of parental rights.  In others, a parent who is taking care of the child may seek to terminate the other parent’s rights on the basis of violence, abuse, abandonment, failure to provide support or one of the other grounds listed in the Michigan statute. Sometimes, a parent will seek to terminate their own rights because they cannot afford to pay child support. In any situation, an experienced lawyer is usually required.
