Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 30, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Lynn C.H. Poschner, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Doyle, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, S.J.  (6 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her children.  OPINION HOLDS: Clear and convincing evidence establishes the grounds for terminating the mother’s parental rights under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(f) (2021).  Because termination is in the children’s best interests and none of the situations listed in section 232.116(3) weigh against termination, we affirm.
