Termination of Parental Rights – there are two basic kinds of TPR, private and county filed. The County may file a TPR if any number of applicable grounds (reasons) exist to terminate a parent’s rights. Attorney Norris has successfully represented parents against the county-filed TPR petition. Our office specializes in juvenile-related matters and as such has spent a considerable amount of time working on TPRs filed by the County. We know the process, the workers, the courtrooms, the juries – and how to make each part of the case work to your advantage.
Private TPRS are typically filed to facilitate a private adoption or private step-parent adoption. Attorney Norris has successfully litigated these matters through jury trial and disposition. TPR is a complex action, involving the need for experts, knowledge of applicable time limits, and a firm grasp of the ever-changing law. As an attorney who is in juvenile court at least 3 days a week (usually 5) Attorney Norris knows how to litigate your case effectively, efficiently, and successfully.
