Termination of parental rights is a court order severing the rights, powers, privileges, immunities, duties, and obligations between a parent and child. This termination may be voluntary or involuntary and can sever the rights of one parent without affecting the rights of another. The laws concerning the termination of parental rights in Florida are found in the Florida Statutes chapter 39. Specifically, Florida Statute 39.806 lists non-exclusive grounds for termination of parental rights:
- Abandonment or Extreme Parent Disinterest - Abuse/Neglect - Incarceration of Parent/Felony Conviction - Sexual Abuse - Child Judged in Need of Services/Dependent - Extreme Alcohol or Drug use by Parent - Felony assault of child or sibling - Murder/Manslaughter of sibling child
