Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 17, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Joseph McCarville, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Tabor, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to a fourteen-year-old son, T.R.  He contends the State failed to prove the statutory ground for termination, it was not in the child’s best interests, and the parent-child relationship should preclude termination.  OPINION HOLDS: We reject each ground urged by the father on our de novo review and affirm the juvenile court.
