          Legal Expert Offers Advice For Father Who Says He Wants To Terminate His Parental Rights


          April 20, 2017

          Steve’s 12-year-old daughter accused him of trying to video record her while she was in the shower and inappropriately touching her while she slept in bed. He insists he never behaved inappropriately with his daughter and an investigation cleared his name. He claims his ex-girlfriend, Robyn, coached their daughter to make the false claims against him – an accusation she denies.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          Now, Steve says he doesn’t want his daughter, whom he has referred to as a “piece of dirt,” in his life anymore because he doesn’t want to risk that she will make additional false accusations toward him. And, he says he doesn’t believe he should have to pay child support for her and is considering terminating his parental rights.

          In the video above from Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Ann-Margaret Carrozza, an estate management attorney and author of the new book Love & Money: Protecting Yourself from Angry Exes, Wacky Relatives, Con Artists, and Inner Demons, weighs in on Steve’s situation.
