Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Lee County, Daniel P. Kitchen, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ. Opinion by Greer, J. (12 pages)
A father argues that termination of his parental rights was not the least restrictive disposition, that the State did not provide reasonable efforts, and that he should have been granted a six-month extension. OPINION HOLDS: Termination is not bound by the least-restrictive disposition. As the father failed to point to specific services he was not provided nor changes he believed he could make with an additional six months, we affirm.
