When is it ok to fight for termination of a absent parents parental right?
If a patent has better things to do than call their son or daughter and is in and out of their life is it ok to try and terminate parental rights?
As a child who grew up with an absent parent, I can definitely understand the desire to terminate the absent parents rights.
I'm not sure at what age is best, I think each child is different and each situation is different. I wouldn't go younger than 12. Terminating rights has permanent and lasting effects and implications and is not something to be taken lightly.
I would recommend the child talk with the present parent and a family lawyer to explain the implications of terminating absent parents rights.
I wouldn't do it out of anger, or revenge. It may have the opposite desired effect and end up hurting the child further.
I think the time is different for all situations. Depends how long the parent has been gone, where they are and who is in their life presently.
I do believe that if the parent/s decides to leave the child and never comes around then I would say the age as nothing to do with it, its how long the parent is gone.
If the father is gone lets say 3 years and the mother is not around, but the children are living with other family members then at that point, the right for termination is justified.
This should be done with love and fairness as not to hurt the children. If you do it for your own selfish reasons you are only hurting the kids and they are the ones to suffer in the long run.
