- A lack of fitness to provide the care and protection a child needs
- Serious risk of physical or emotional harm

Termination Of Rights Is An Important Step In Adoption As Well
From a legal standpoint, adopting a child has two major steps: while much of the literature about adoption focuses on establishing parental rights for adoptive parents, it is just as important to terminate the parental rights of a child’s biological parents in order to fully establish your authority as your child’s permanent legal guardian.
This process can be easy or difficult, depending on the level of cooperation you have from your child’s biological parent or parents. Whether you are working collaboratively with a biological parent to offer a more stable environment for your child, or are dealing with a parent who cannot see the ways in which they are unable provide the care and protection that a child needs, it’s important to work with an attorney who can guide you through the process with skilled legal advice and compassion for this delicate subject. The Law Office of Frank P. Skipper offers the personalized attention that you need.
