How Can New Jersey Terminate My Parental Rights?
As a parent, you have the right to see your child, as well as make decisions for them and receive information about them. With that being said, if you, as a parent, are seen as a threat to your child by the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP) and the state of New Jersey, you have your parental rights terminated. When your parental rights are on the line, it is important to call our team of DCPP lawyers ASAP.
The termination of parental rights starts when DCPP starts a civil action by filing a complaint, which is also called a guardianship complaint. Here, there may be a number of hearings and possibly a trial, which is used to see if the complaint by DCPP is justified. If deemed justified, the parent may have their parental rights legally terminated if it is what’s best for the child.
Fight DCPP and New Jersey with Our Help
Leading up to the termination of parental rights are a number of orders given by the Court that have either failed or were ignored by the parent. On top of that, the Division must be able to prove that the parent is an unfit parent and that the child will continue to be harmed by the parent. It must also be shown that reasonable measures were taken in order to maintain the relationship between the parent and child, and that these actions failed or were ignored. Finally, DCPP must prove that terminating the rights of the parent will do more good than harm to the child and their well being.
