Law would let courts restore parental rights

There are 193 comments on the Nevada Appeal story from Apr 5, 2007, titled Law would let courts restore parental rights. In it, Nevada Appeal reports that:

“I feel strongly that we do not go down that road, I would hate to see a circumstance where a parent is, for example, in prison and is sending petition after petition through the courts trying to regain parental rights, disrupting the child's life”

Measure gets unanimous approval from Assembly Judiciary Committee Cathleen Allison/Nevada Appeal Clark County Family Court Judge Gerry Hardcastle, left, and Nevada Assemblywoman Susan Gerhardt, D-Henderson, ... via Nevada Appeal

I signed my rights over in 2007 thinking it was what was best for my children. I was conned into signing my rights over and my babies need help... I want to bring them back home but I need help... I don't know if my rights were officially severed or what exactly is going on but I see two of my three girls... if anyone can help, please let me know... when did helping the children turn into making money off of them and hurting them?

I stayed and three weeks ago i was taken away with my little brother from DSS because my birth mom isn't allowed to have us. Now all i want is to go home. My mom wants this more than anything. She has been sober for 2 years and her boyfriend 8 years. She has records and will do everything she can to get us back?! just how can we make this situation happen?! HELP!!
. I think you have to get emancipated to become a legal adult to make your own decisions or have your aunt petition the courts to restore your mothers rights or tell your mother to get a damn attorney

I was in an abusive relationship with nowhere else to go for 3 years. Two of those I had my son, who's father had passed away before he was born. My ex was a drunk, and teamed up with people and made up lies and CPS ended up running all over me.. Before I knew it, they terminated my rights. I cry every day. I'm left with nothing, no parents, no family no baby. I recently have gotten pregnant... Scared to death they might catch wind and try and take my child when I give birth. I'm a good mom and all I wanna do is create a life with my babies without being raped of that opportunity like I was a childhood and everything else for that matter... I live in wv.. Please help? I want to be educated in this

I live in WV and my parental rights were terminated over 16 yrs ago. My children were given to my husbsnd to raise. In 1997 I gave birth to a little boy. When he was just a few months old cps took him because they said I had lost my parental rights forever. On a technicality (the wrong county cps had taken him) I got him back. But cps got a warrant in the correct county and tried to get him again. I fled to another state to keep my child. Now that child is 15 yrs old and I also am taking care of a 6 yr old grandchild. I live in the very county that had that warrant on me all those years ago. If cps is notified that I am now back in wv can they take both these children from me?

Termination of Parental Rights (TPR). If the judge orders the termination of your parental rights, you have no rights to your children. They are no longer legally your children. Once they are adopted by another family, they are legally theirs. A TPR is serious because you will not be able to get your children back afterwards.
This is not true, even though you were terminated your rights, you still have grounds for an appeal, even after TPR. I have seen cases go as far as the Supreme courts only to get reversed there. I've researched case law and am a law student and have attorney friends. I say never give up on your children.
would you be able to help me ?

I feel your pain more than you know. I am from WV and had 3 children taken from me in that state. Get out while you can. WV will take your child straight from the hospital if they are aware you are pregnant and you have had your rights terminated to another child. My mother had a lot to do with me losing my oldest 2 children (she has had them for 15 years now), and my third child born in 2002 was taken straight from the hospital by Ohio County DHS because my rights had been terminated to a previous child. Unfortunately, the way the US works, if you really want to be able to keep your children and raise them you will need to leave the country or don't let anyone know where you are and don't tell anyone where you move to about your past history with the DHS. I have had 2 children taken in OK because of my Husband's 1/2 sister, and then she hunted us for over a year to call CPS in CO and had my 2 children taken here. I have actually left my husband, and am hoping that I can get my 7 month old back home with me.

I wish you all the luck in the world. God Bless you.

I don't know MI law, but I know in WV, OK, and CO the CPS can take a child and terminate rights based on a past termination.

I was born and raised in WV and had 3 children taken from me in that state. I would not put anything past that state in taking children, especially if you live in the Northern Panhandle.
