TANNER and RUSSELL TANNER, Minors.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY
June 5, 1998
Kent Juvenile Court
LC No. 550-82441 NA
Before: Wahls, P.J., and Jansen and Gage, JJ.
Respondent mother appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating her parental rights
to her three sons under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g) and (i); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(g) and (i). We
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination set forth
at MCL 712A.19b(3)(g) and (i); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(g) and (i) were established by clear and
convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989).
Additionally, because respondent mother failed to rebut the mandatory presumption that termination is
clearly in the best interests of the children, the juvenile court did not clearly err in terminating respondent
mother’s parental rights. In re Hamlet (After Remand), 225 Mich App 505, 515; 571 NW2d 750
(1997); In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470, 471-474; 564 NW2d 156 (1997).
