If your parental rights were terminated by a Court, it is unlikely that you could get them reinstated other than through a timely and successful appeal. If your custody or visitation rights were reduced to zero through a divorce or paternity case, you might be able to obtain custody or visitation rights via an Order to Show Cause after remedying the problem that caused the reduction and creating a consistent track record that demonstrates that the problem is solved. m

Since you don't say how or why your parental rights need to be restored, it isn't possible to give clear answer to your question. Generally, however, if your rights were terminated by court either for child abuse or for abandonment, it is probably almost impossible to change the past. You should consult an attorney who can examine the situation in more detail and advise you of your possible options.

The answer depends on how your rights were terminated in the first place. If you gave the child up for adoption and your rights were terminated that way, then you could adopt the child to reinstate your parental rights. If your parental rights were terminated because the court deemed you an unfit parent, you probably cannot reinstate your parental rights.
