Termination of parental rights

If your rights are terminated can you see the child again or have anything to do with them?  Please don't bash about why would anyone do this or how could they.  Its just a simple question.

Not unless the person who has custody of the child allows it.

I guess it would depend on any agreements the parents make.

Not unless the person who has custody of the child allows it. & sometimes, the judge can order that the parents stay away (abuse situations) in which case no, they cannot.

I don't think so. Unless a family member has them? Not sure. Dhs cousin got her rights terminated and she still can see her kids since her mom adopted them. although she may have voluntarily gave them up. not sure. She's a hot mess

If your rights are terminated then you cannot have anything to do with the child unless the other parent lets you see the child

My cousin had her rights terminated. Her mom has her son. She still sees him. It was YEARS ago, and she has grown up a lot.

My mom had her rights terminated and she was not entitled to see or have input on medical or school things.  She was not entitled to any visits with me.  I could call her still if I wanted to, or even visit if I chose (when I was older) but she didn't have any rights.

Each situation can be different though depending on the circumstances of the termination of rights.

If a parent's rights are terminated, they are no longer that child's parent. They have NO rights whatsoever to that child. The only way they could see them is if their parent allowed it. But that would be hurtful to the child, you couldn't say oh this is your mom/dad, but they aren't anymore.

 Depends on the circumstances surrounding the termination and what the Court orders.
