Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jan 23, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Marion County, Steven Guiter, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (7 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child, O.W., born in 2018.  The mother maintains the statutory grounds for termination have not been met, termination is not in O.W.’s best interests, the court should have applied a permissive factor to save the parent-child relationship, and a six-month extension to work toward reunification is warranted.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
