Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jan 10, 2024

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Wapello County, Richelle Mahaffey, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., and Ahlers and Buller, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, P.J.  (5 pages)

            The father appeals the termination of his parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the father has not challenged termination under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(h) (2023), termination is in the child’s best interests, and the father has not demonstrated that the need for removal will not exist after a six-month extension, we affirm.
