Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Kimberly Ayotte, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ. Opinion by Greer, J. (7 pages)
Two fathers, C.M. and T.T., separately appeal the termination of their parental rights. C.M. asserts he should have been granted a six-month extension, while T.T. asserts the State failed to prove the statutory grounds for termination. OPINION HOLDS: Because C.M. has not demonstrated a six-month extension would have remedied the concerns preventing reunification, and because the State satisfied the statutory grounds for termination as to T.T., we affirm on both appeals.
