Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jones County, Deborah Farmer Minot, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ. Opinion by Mulilns, J. (13 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: We find the statutory grounds for termination under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(f) (2018) were established by clear and convincing evidence, termination is in the best interests of the children, and an extension of time is unwarranted. We affirm the juvenile court’s order terminating the mother’s parental rights.
