In re E.F.Annotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the order of the trial court terminating Mother's parental rights in her four minor children, holding that the trial court did not abuse its discretion by determining that it was in the children's best interests that Mother's parental rights be terminated.
After a hearing, the trial court concluded that there were grounds to terminate Mother's parental rights for neglect, failure to pay a reasonable portion of the children's cost of care, and dependency. The court then concluded that terminating the parental rights of Mother was in the best interests of the children. On appeal, Mother argued that the trial court abused its discretion in concluding that it was in the children's best interests that her parental rights be terminated. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that Mother failed to show that the trial court abused its discretion by concluding it was in the children's best interests to terminate her parental rights.
