Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Buena Vista County, Mary L. Timko, Associate Juvenile Judge. AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Greer, J., and Vogel, S.J. Opinion by Vogel, S.J. (6 pages)
A mother and father each appeal a juvenile court order terminating their parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: There is clear and convincing evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights, and the court properly denied her request for an extension of time. The father did not raise any claims concerning the termination of his parental rights. We conclude his parental rights were properly terminated. We affirm on both appeals.
