In the Matter of DALE SCHALK, JR., Minor.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
November 24, 1998
Bay Juvenile Court
LC No. 95-005406 NA
DALE WESLEY SCHALK,
Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating her parental
rights to the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g) and (i); MSA 27.3178(598.19b) (3)(g) and (i).
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were
established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331; 445 NW2d
161 (1989). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was
clearly not in the child’s best interests. MCL 712A.19(b)(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re HallSmith, 222 Mich App 470, 472; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err in
terminating respondent-appellant's parental rights to the child. Id.
