    Hi. This time I am needing help to translate in the right way this short expression: "a parent's rights". Part of the full sentence is the following:

    ".........unless there is a court order, law, or legal document (such as in a divorce or custody document) that terminates a parent's rights."

    My wondering is if the preposition "a" can be translated as "con", to say "con los derechos del padre"; o "unos derechos del padre?".

    I was reserching about it, but not luck.

    Thanks for all your comments!

    "a" is the indefinite article!

    Como Tazzler ha dicho, "a" es el artículo, sólo quiere decir "un".

    "...que ponga término a los derechos de un padre". Es una situación hipotética y refiere a los derechos de cualquier padre que se encuentre frente a esta ley.
