Unless there is another adult willing to step into your shoes and adopt the child the court is not going to let you voluntarily terminate your parental rights. Even if you have minimal or no visitation with the child. To answer your question though you will need to go to the Juvenile Court and file your petition there. Do not expect a positive outcome there. To provide you a more detailed answer more significant facts are needed.

if one of the parents wants to terminate the parental right and other party is agreed upon that, can it be possible to terminate the parental right for the unwilling parent?
