Parental Rights and Liability

There are many facets of parenting. Two of these are the rights that parents hold regarding the ability to see and raise their children and the responsibilities they have for supporting their children and their children’s actions. Not every family is the same, so determining these rights and responsibilities can be difficult. However, there are legal processes for both the creation and termination of parental privileges and obligations. Welcome to the Parenting and the Law section of FindLaw's Family Law Center, providing information on legal issues related to parenting.
