Adoption And The Termination Of Parental Rights

The firm provides representation for stepparent and private adoptions. We can also assist you with international adoption. If you are adopting a child with Native American heritage, you may need to comply with the Indian Child Welfare Act. Our attorneys can help you with the termination of parental rights in all of these circumstances.

When the child’s biological parents are alive, their parental rights must be terminated as part of the process. We can draft a voluntary relinquishment of parental rights and help you locate the biological parents if necessary. If a biological parent refuses to sign away his or her rights or is unable to do so, we can draft an involuntary relinquishment of parental rights.

Oklahoma has strict guidelines regarding the termination of parental rights. Because this is the first legal step in the adoption process, it is essential that your attorney understands the law and is familiar with the court procedures.
