MoBarCLE and The Young Lawyers’ Section present Coffee & Core Concepts – an early morning webinar series that will provide need-to-know information regarding core legal concepts.  Our experienced presenters will deliver practical, how-to instructions, updates on recent developments, and practical tips and advice in convenient one-hour seminars.  

Originally presented on: August 28, 2019

The ability to terminate the parental rights of a party over a child is one of the most severe consequences imposed by juvenile courts in the state. Unlike traditional plaintiff versus defendant litigation, clients who find themselves facing a termination proceeding also have to address issues relating to Children’s Division, Court Appointed Advocates, Guardians ad Litem, and the Juvenile Office. This can often lead to confusion not only for the client, but for a practitioner who is unprepared for the nuances of termination litigation.  

This program will give an overview of basic grounds for termination, procedures for hearing, and common considerations when prosecuting or defending a termination action.   

  • Grounds for private action for termination of parental rights
  • Grounds for mandatory and permissive filing of petition by the Juvenile Office
  • Proper procedures for consent to termination of parental rights by a parent
  • Filing and procedural considerations when litigating termination of parental rights

Speaker: J. Benjamin Verkamp, The Verkamp Law Firm LLC, Rolla
