In some situations the state or another party may seek to terminate the parental rights of one or both parents. This process can make a child eligible for adoption by a new family or by a stepparent. A parent can agree to terminate his or her rights or it can be done by court order. A court considers the best interests of the child, among several other factors, in deciding whether to terminate a parent’s rights.
