Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 25, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Delaware County, Thomas J. Straka, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Greer, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: The mother waived her due process claim by not citing any authority in support of her argument.  We find the State engaged in reasonable efforts to reunite the mother with the child.  The juvenile court properly denied the mother’s requests to place the child in a guardianship and for an extension of time.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
