Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Colin J. Witt, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED IN PART AND VACATED IN PART. Considered by Vogel, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ. Opinion by Bower, J. (7 pages)
The maternal grandmother and guardian of a child, C.P., appeals the termination of the mother’s parental rights and the termination of her guardianship. OPINION HOLDS: We do not address C.P.’s claims regarding the permanency order. We affirm the juvenile court’s order terminating the rights of the parents. We vacate the portion of the termination order addressing C.P.’s guardianship because the juvenile court did not have subject matter jurisdiction to address the issue.
