A non-custodial parent’s rights may be terminated for a number of reasons:

  • Failure to pay child support
  • Failure to visit the child for a number of years
  • Perceived negative influence on the child’s life

In some instances, the non-custodial parent may terminate their own rights in order to avoid paying child support. If this is done, however, the non-custodial parent has relinquished any and all responsibility or connection to the child, and can at no point legally ask to be in the child’s life again. As these matters are especially serious and somber, the non-parental rights attorneys at Bush & Taylor in Suffolk, Virginia Beach, and the Eastern Shore, urge you to consider this information at length, and to contact us for a free legal consultation.

Involuntary termination of parental rights is possible in some cases, due to neglect or abuse which endangers the health of the child or children in question.
