06/02/2009 - Category:Paternity - Termination of Parental Rights - State: OK #16841

Full Question:

I have custody of our children, and my ex-husband would like to completely relinquish all his rights to them. I need the proper forms to satisfy the court. There is no disagreement about what is best for the children, we just need the forms.

Answer:

A parent may also have rights terminated, either by voluntary relinquishment or judicial termination. A judicial termination requires proof that the parent isdunfit and/or poses a threat of harm to the child. A termination of parental rights voids any rights and obligations toward the child. The parent will no longer have rights to custody or visitation and will no longer owe a duty of support. However, it is possible that back support owed may still be collected.
