Importance Of Parental Rights

Parenting can be a complicated task, especially after separation. At Lakes Mediation, we offer you with all the services of mediation and help you to exercise parental rights. There are many rights of a parent regarding the child’s future and these are altered when they are separated. Parents also have a lot of responsibilities and have to take many decisions regarding the children. The case of decision making is very sensitive as the whole future of the child is dependent on it. Parents have to be aware of the rights they have as otherwise it will not be very responsible on their part. The court can implement or terminate the rights of the parents according to the situation.

Parental rights the legal rights, duties, powers, responsibilities and authority a parent has for a child and the child’s property. A person who has parental responsibility for a child has the right to make decisions about their care and upbringing. These include decisions regarding the child’s education, religion, schedule, career etc. Rights of a parent can be extended to custody and visitation in case they have been separated. The rights of a parent are mandatory in certain cases and can be altered or terminated in some. For example, if a father has not claimed paternity or paternity has not been established against him, then he cannot have any parental right. The court can terminate the rights of both the parents and liabilities also. Some other reasons for the termination of parental rights are own wish, abuse, mental illness, drug or alcohol impairment etc. A parent has to take care of all these factors before exercising its rights.

The task of Lakes Family Mediation is to keep you informed about all the rights and responsibilities of parents after being separated. We tell you the situations in which you can exercise your rights and some situations in which you cannot. Our experienced mediators have all the information and they have handled a lot of situations like these. Parental liabilities also can be reduced or terminated just like the parental rights. The liabilities of a parent are terminated automatically when the child reaches adulthood and are considered as a major. Parent can voluntarily participate in the process of mediation. It is the duty of the mediator to take into consideration all the opinions of both the parties.
