Termination of Parental Rights

In the state of Michigan, if one parent commits an act that is deemed by the courts to endanger, desert, or severely abuse or neglect their child, the parent who has committed this act can potentially lose their parenting rights over that child. The implication of a termination of parental rights can severely impact your life. It could be grounds for the potential termination of your parenting rights in regards to your other children, even those not yet born.
