Adoption
Custody

Can you still adopt if you have had parental rights removed but for reasons other than child abuse?

This is something that would be dealt with on a case by case

basis; start by talking to DCF (or whatever it's called in your

area: department of children and families) and get information

directly from them.

I don't think that they will allow anyone to adopt that has had

their parental rights taken away from them. Even if it was not for

abuse, then it could have been for neglect.
