In the Matter of BIANCA ALESHIA BROWN,
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
May 29, 1998
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 89-282114
Before: Jansen, P.J., and Kelly and Markey, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals by delayed leave granted from a juvenile court order terminating
his parental rights to the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (f), (g) and (j); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i), (f), (g) and (j). We affirm.
We have reviewed the decision to terminate respondent-appellant’s parental rights in its entirety
and conclude that the juvenile court’s findings of fact were not clearly erroneous. MCR 5.974(I). The
statutory grounds for termination provided in MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g) and (j); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i), (g) and (j) were established by clear and convincing evidence. In re
Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989); In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470, 472; 564
NW2d 156 (1997). Further, the juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that termination of
respondent-appellant’s parental rights was in the best interests of the child. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(5), In re Hall-Smith, supra, pp 472-473.
