I need documentation as to why parental rights were terminated.
Termination of parental rights is the severing of the parent-child relationship by the state. Such a decision may be made based upon, among other factors, abandonment by a parent, child abuse, unfitness of a parent, and other injuries to a child. The parent whose rights are sought to be terminated has certain due process rights, such as proper notice and a hearing. You should have already received such documentation.
All such proceedings in Colorado are handled by Juvenile Court and are usually brought in the county in which the child resides or is present.
If you have never receive any notice from a juvenile court as to an action to terminate your parental rights, you should contact the appropriate juvenile court.
