Highlight

A child is a deprived child for purposes of termination of parental rights if the child has been abandoned by the child's parent, guardian, or other custodian.
Paying child support, alone, is not sufficient to prevent a finding of abandonment.
Adequate care from a foster parent or other source does not prevent a finding of deprivation.
