Legal Answers
Q. If a parent has multiple children in different homes and parental rights are terminated does that apply to all children?
A: If you have not been approved by the state as a foster parent, you will likely need to file a petition to adopt and a termination of parental rights as to the child in your custody. The birth parents may be willing to consent to avoid another involuntary termination. You should contact a Kentucky adoption attorney like myself for a free consultation.
Q. Hello, I am trying to get help with adopting the little boy I currently have permanent custody of.
A: Good morning, you need to hire an adoption attorney to petition the family court where you live to adopt and simultaneously terminate the parental rights of the birth parents. Based upon the information you’ve provided, it does not sound as if the birth father’s consent would be required because he has abandoned the child and failed to provide parental care and protection for the child with no reasonable expectation of improvement.
Q. I have been charged with a dui. I need a lawyer to represent me. My income is limited. Do you offer pro Bono service?
A: You may qualify for a court-appointed public defender. You should fill out an Affidavit of Indigency at the district clerk's office in the county in which you have been charged. The court will determine your eligibility.
