Termination Of Parental Rights Lawyer; Phoenix, Mesa, AZ
Learn More About Parents Rights in Arizona from an Experienced Divorce Lawyer
Arizona law takes parent-child relationships seriously, and it takes the well being of the child even more seriously. Parental rights could be terminated if a parent is found to be abusive or incompetent. An addiction to alcohol or drugs will impair your ex’s ability to care for your children. Sometimes, a parent’s mental stability may be a problem. Because abuse, neglect, or abandonment could harm a child physically or emotionally, the court will act in the child’s best interest.
Whatever the situation, we are here to help. Attorneys Steven Cole and Kelley Durham will help you present evidence effectively. We offer the same legal services that a large firm would, such as depositions that can be used as evidence in court. We will pursue your case assertively to protect your child’s well being and your rights as a parent.
In some cases, one parent may seek the termination of another parent’s child custody and visitation rights on the grounds that the accused parent did not “maintain a normal parental relationship with the child.” In other cases, one parent may accuse the other of outright child abuse. In other cases, a parent may be unable to care for the child adequately.
