In the Texas Family Code, parental rights can be terminated voluntarily or involuntarily. When someone voluntarily terminates their parental rights, it’s usually because they want to stop paying child support. When someone’s parental rights are involuntarily terminated, it’s generally because they are endangering their child in some way.
There are numerous circumstances that can influence the court's decision to terminate someone’s parental rights. Some of these circumstances include:
The Texas Family Code lists many other scenarios that can lead to the termination of parental rights, so it’s important to discuss your unique case with a parental rights attorney that can help you understand this complex issue.
