Termination of Parental Rights (Probate)
What Is Termination of Parental Rights?
Termination of parental rights is when the court orders that one, or both, biological parents’ rights to their child to be removed (or terminated). This means that those parents are not able to make any decisions on behalf of that child, and they are also no longer afforded visitation. If both parents have their rights terminated, then that child will be eligible for adoption.
One parent may petition the probate court to terminate the rights of another. The probate court will also allow a permanent legal guardian to petition for the termination of parental rights for a child in their care. These petitions do require certain criteria and additional documents on occasion, and each probate court operates slightly differently within the state of Connecticut.
