Question

A petition has been filed seeking to terminate my parental rights.  Do I have the right to a jury trial?

Answer

​With respect to proceedings to terminate parental rights, there is no right to a jury trial.  You do, however, have the right to a jury trial at the initial adjudication, or when the Court first seeks to take jurisdiction over your child(ren).
