Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jun 16, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Webster County, Joseph L. Tofilon, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., May, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (9 pages)

            A mother and father separately appeal from the termination of their parental rights to their child.  Both contend the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court, the court should have granted additional time to work toward reunification, termination is not in the child’s best interests, and the department of human services failed to make reasonable efforts toward reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm on both appeals.
