Termination of Parental Rights


Mr. Parnes has handled numerous cases representing parents where the State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has either filed petitions to either take temporary custody of their children or seek to terminate the parental rights. He has been successful on many occasions in having children returned to their parents and preventing the termination of parental rights in both Oakland and Genesee Counties.

In representing parents, Elliot educates and advises the parents on their applicable legal rights & options, court process , prepares and argues motions in court and  appears on behalf of the parents at all hearings and the trial before a Referee, Judge or Jury.

Representation is based on client providing a retainer fee and calculated on a per/hour basis.
