Token Efforts in Termination of Parental Rights

In Las Vegas, if your parenting skills are being called into question by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), it is best to consult with a family law attorney right away.  You will need to know what the term "token efforts" means because, if you are guilty of token efforts, you can lose your children.  The Nevada Supreme Court has declared that termination of parental rights is akin to a civil death penalty.  This death penalty can be imposed if the parent makes token efforts.  Hiring a family law attorney to describe to you your obligations regarding your children is an important first step to ensuring that you will not lose your children to token efforts.

The information about termination of parental rights contained on this page is not intended to be legal advice about termination of parental rights.  Your termination of parental rights matter should always best be evaluated by a Las Vegas family lawyer.  You should treat termination of parental rights with the seriousness it requires.  Just as you would not likely conduct surgery on yourself, you should not represent yourself in court regarding your termination of parental rights matter.  
At the very least, the best free advice a lawyer can give: consult with a local attorney—multiple times if necessary if you insist upon representing yourself.
