Parental Rights

Parental rights attorneys work to ensure that the legal rights of the parent are protected during a divorce. Parents, whether biological or legally designated, have certain legal rights and obligations with regards to their children, including rights that determine the preservation of custody and visitation, the approval of medical procedures, and the division of inheritance. In contentious divorces involving children, a parental rights lawyer will not only perform the duties of a divorce attorney but will also work to preserve the rights of the parent with regards to his or her child. Because courts can voluntarily or non-voluntarily terminate parental rights, a family law lawyer who has experience with parental rights can help protect a parent's rights during a divorce.
