Parents who are considering giving up or facing the possibility of losing their parental rights are undoubtedly in a painful, difficult position. Parents are typically expected to be the best advocates and caretakers for their kids, but the reality in some situations is that a child's parents may not be the people best suited for this role.
Florida family law presumes that a child's parents are best suited to care for the child. The law also presumes that the parents should have parental rights. In some extremely difficult cases, however, a court may require the biological parents to relinquish custody of their child. Each one of these cases is unique, and every parent facing this situation should have experienced legal counsel.
