Illinois Compiled Statutes establish the grounds for termination of a father's rights. In addition, the law sets forth the procedures used to sever a father's rights. Generally speaking, a father's rights can be terminated in adoption proceedings or if the father is determined to have engaged in a pattern of abuse or neglect of the child. In a case of abuse or neglect, there must be no reasonable likelihood that the father can be reintegrated into the life of the child.
