Parental termination is a legal process in which a parent's legal rights are taken away. In the eyes of the law, that person ceases to be that child's parents, and has no more rights or responsibilities towards the child.
Even after you've been separated or divorced for years, there are common problems that many co-parenting families must face. Whether these are big or small, the key is to find a reasonable way to work through the problems and preserve your cooperation.
