Best Answer

The termination of parental rights is done in two ways either voluntarily by the parent(s) or involuntarily by the court. One parent cannot force the other to give up their rights to a child/children, they can petition the court for sole custody. Howevr, the non custodial parent will still be allowed visitation rights unless there are mitigating circumstances such as the parent having been proved to be abusive.
