Termination means "the complete severance by court order of the legal relationship, with all its rights and responsibilities, between the child and the child's parent or parents so that the child is free for adoption except it shall not affect the right of inheritance of the child or the religious affiliation of the child." Section 45a-707 of the Connecticut General Statutes (Inheritance rights cease upon adoption.) I understand that no action taken with respect to my consent to termination of my parental rights affects the parental rights of the other parent. I understand the termination of my parental rights to mean that I will no longer have the following legal rights and responsibilities on the effective date of termination: 1. the legal right to custody, guardianship or control of the child or youth; I will have no legal right to care for the child or youth or make any decisions on behalf of the child or youth; 2. the legal right to obtain the child's or youth's birth certificate; 3. the legal right to any state or federal benefits I may have been receiving for the child or youth; 4. the legal responsibility to support the child or youth and to pay for the child's or youth's maintenance, medical and other expenses, but I may be responsible for support of the child or youth until the effective date of the termination; 5. the responsibility to care for the child or youth or make any decisions on his or her behalf. Signed (Parent) , a person under the age of eighteen. I have considered the following: 1. the child or youth will be legally free for adoption after the termination and I will have no right to notice of the adoption proceedings nor any right to participate in the proceedings; 2. as an alternative to the termination of my parental rights, the nature and extent of family and counseling services which may be available through an agency which could improve the relationship between the child or youth and me or reunite the child or youth with me; 3. the child's or youth's feelings and the emotional ties of the child or youth toward me; 4. the extent to which I may have been prevented from maintaining a meaningful relationship with the child or youth by actions of the other parent of the child or youth or any other person, or by my economic circumstances. 5. My consent today in the Superior Court for Juvenile Matters may permit the Department of Children and Families to seek to terminate my parental rights to another child of mine under the age of seven. It may seek to do so without giving me more than ninety (90) days to rehabilitate, if the child has been found neglected, uncared for or abused by the court. I am aware that the court must conduct a hearing before approving the termination of parental rights even if both parents consent to the termination. I am aware that the child or youth, upon reaching his or her 18th birthday, may have the right to information which may identify me or other blood relatives.
