In a surrender of parental rights, all parties agree to terminate the rights of a parent; whereas a termination of parental rights case (TPR) can be either contested or uncontested. A TPR petition does not always result in a termination of one or both parent’s parental rights.   A surrender can also allow for certain conditions to exist such as who should adopt the child and how much contact the parent is entitled to post adoption.
