Severance and Termination of Parental Rights

At the Dodds Law Firm we understand that it may become necessary to terminate the parental rights of one of both parents. Under Arizona law, termination of rights may occur for a variety of reasons. Whether you are a party seeking to have the parental rights of another terminated, or are being sued to terminate your parental rights, the experienced and knowledgeable attorneys at The Dodds Law Firm are here to assist you in effectively advocating your interests during the severance and/or termination of parental rights proceeding.

A parental termination case often involves the Department of Child Safety, various police agencies, mental health providers, and numerous other attorneys who represent these agencies. Most people find it to be a daunting task to protect their legal rights if they have not retained competent legal representation.

At the Dodds Law Firm, our experienced attorneys are prepared to work collaboratively, on your behalf, with each of the parties or agencies who may be involved in this legal matter. Our goal is to seek ways to minimize and resolve unnecessary or disruptive disputes, thus lowering the overall cost to you to achieve your interest. When a negotiated resolution is not available, our experienced attorneys are prepared to strongly advocate for your interests in the courtroom.
