Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Keokuk County, Daniel Kitchen, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED AND REMANDED. Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Greer, JJ. Opinion by Bower, C.J. (9 pages)
A father appeals the termination of his parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: We find the father was not prejudiced by the disputed exhibit, clear and convincing evidence supports termination, termination is in the child’s best interests, no factor weighs against termination, and a guardianship is not appropriate. We affirm and remand to the juvenile court for entry of a nunc pro tunc order.
