parental rights

parental rights

“Parental Rights” encompass the rights and privileges that underline the relationship between a child and their parents or any adults who significantly influence the child’s life. These rights exist not only in the European Union but worldwide, contributing to the legal framework that guides familial relationships and obligations. This area of law also includes matters related to contact (often known as visitation rights in the United States) and residence.

In the context of Wasatch Defense Lawyers, the term implies the legal rights and responsibilities parents have towards their children. This typically includes the right to make decisions about the child’s upbringing, education, medical treatment, and religion. It also includes the right to the child’s custody and the responsibility to provide for the child’s physical, emotional, and financial needs.

While we specialize in criminal law, we understand the critical intersection between criminal charges and parental rights, especially in cases such as domestic disputes, violence, or any charges that might impact a parent’s relationship with their child.
