Rape Survivor Child Custody Act

Primary tabs

The Rape Survivor Child Custody Act ("RSCCA") authorizes the U.S. Attorney General to make grants to states that pass legislation terminating the parental rights of men who father children through rape. States must use the "clear and convincing evidence" standard, which is the predominant standard in the U.S. for termination of parental rights, to determine whether the father committed rape.
