Court of Appeals Opinion

Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Page County, Amy L. Zacharias, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (5 pages)

            The father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his child, E.W., born in 2017.  The juvenile court terminated the father’s parental rights pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(e) and (h) (2018).  The father only challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the grounds for termination.  OPINION HOLDS: Because E.W. could not be returned to the father’s care at the time of the termination hearing, we affirm the juvenile court’s termination of the father’s parental rights pursuant to section 232.116(1)(h).
