Deprivation of parental rights

Violence in families, asocial and immoral way of life of parents, complete loss of one of the parents or both of them at once emotional connection with the child – all this can entail a natural consequence in the form of deprivation of parental rights. Only a court can figure out who is right and who is to blame in such situations.

Legal advice – deprivation of parental rights: grounds and consequences

Often mothers are interested in the issue of deprivation of parental rights, who wish to break the burdensome bond between the father and the child. We are talking about those cases when the parent does not participate at all in the life and maintenance of the child, but enjoys the right to prohibit the mother and child from traveling abroad, change the place of registration, and so on.

Important! Cannot be used as a justification for deprivation of parental rights:

  • separately taken alimony debt;
  • personal hostility and quarrels between the child’s father and mother;
  • isolated cases of refusal to fulfill parental responsibilities or bad attitude towards the child.

These justifications should be supported by other arguments and evidence, if possible. A lawyer for deprivation of parental rights for consultations is ready to talk about how to fix the father’s misconduct and collect the evidence base for going to court.

Also, if deprivation of parental rights is planned, the lawyer informs about the legal consequences of this procedure. Key points in these circumstances:

a parent who has been deprived of parental rights will no longer be required to consent to the child’s departure abroad, moving to another country for permanent residence, changing the place of registration (registration) or the child’s surname;

a parent who has been deprived of parental rights is released from the duties of raising the child, but not from the duties of maintaining it, in particular, through the payment of alimony;
