Ponder v. Ark. Dep't of Human Servs. (Majority, with Dissenting)Annotate this Case
After the circuit court adjudicated the three children of Appellee to be neglected, the circuit court found that it was not in the best interest of the children to return to Appellee and granted permanent custody of the children to family members. The court of appeals reversed. The Department of Human Services filed a petition for review. The Supreme Court granted the petition and affirmed the circuit court, holding that the circuit court did not err in finding that it was in Appellee’s three minor children’s best interest to be placed in the permanent custody of relatives and that there was sufficient evidence to support the circuit court’s findings.
