Can you tell me, is someone else standing by waiting to adopt your daughter if you terminate your parental rights?
Thank you. The court will not let you voluntarily terminate your parental rights unless there was someone willing to adopt a child.
The reason for this is the court makes all decisions based on what is best for the child. The court will not let you step away as parent unless there is someone ready to step up and take your place.
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that you can terminate your rights but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
